 Abseiling on Mount Grand Teton

Abseiling (or rappelling) is the controlled descent of a climber down a rock face using a rope. One of our favorite places to practice this activity would be on Mount Grand Teton in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA. 

Even the easiest route to climb Mount Grand Teton requires technical rock climbing skills and equipment. All routes are in an alpine environment and climbers can be subject to any type of weather conditions at any time of the year, from storms to snow and ice. 

Abseiling is also part of every available route to descend Mount Grand Teton. In addition, rock falls are also very common - so all in all, this mountain is not recommended for absolute beginners. 

Guided tours are available for those brave enough to risk it, or those who wish to go beyond their experience level and try climbing a more difficult route.
