Join Paradox Sports for a trip of a lifetime! As the adaptive climbing leader, Paradox Sports is providing an amazing climbing opportunity on the Grand Teton, Wyoming! This program is offered exclusively to Veterans at no cost. As one of the most iconic climbing destinations in the U.S. the Grand Teton trip offers our Veterans an opportunity to advance their climbing skills, overcome physical and mental challenges and will serve as a catalyst for forging lasting relationships. Our goal is to build community and facilitate a transformational climbing experience!
This classic climb is a 4-day program – where you will receive 2 days of group instruction. All climbers are taught the skills necessary to fully participate during their 2-day Grand Teton climb. These skills include: bouldering, multi-pitch climbing techniques, rappelling, knots, rope management.
The expedition will be based out of the American Alpine Club’s Teton Climbers Ranch, nestled at the foot of the Tetons in Grand Teton National Park. The group will meet up and do a gear check the first night, spend two days training for the summit attempt of the Grand Teton, then spend the next two days on the climb itself. The objective is the summit of the Grand Teton. Towering over the valley below at 13,770 feet, the Grand is one of the most iconic climbs in the U.S. The climb starts at Jenny Lake, and climbs Garnet Canyon for 7 miles and over 5000 vertical feet to the lower saddle hut, where the team will spend the night. Waking up before dawn, the team will make the final push to the summit, an additional 2000 vertical feet from the lower saddle, then return to base camp the same day. This is a physically demanding trip and will provide the opportunity to push limits. Spaces are limited.
