Bouldering in the Tetons at high elevations and alpine environment. Mostly uncrowded except for a few locals warming up or projecting. Some boulders need cleaning and a few include sketchy landings. Multiple pads are encouraged. Route grades tend to vary from v~ easy to v~ 9/10. Granite makes up the majority of the boulders but a few limestone boulders can be found. Many open projects and FA's await those eager to explore. This area has huge!!! potential. Bring lots of water, sunscreen, brushes, extra chalk, bug spray, bear spray, and some snacks. Approaches vary from 1 minute to 60 minutes of up hill hiking. Shares trails with hikers and backpackers who tend to be interested in what you're doing and ask questions and want to take photos. Bouldering began in the area long before I have. Most of what I am posting is beta passed on by other locals or is to the best of my knowledge, first accents and open projects. If any information is incorrect, please, let me know and we can correct the beta.
