Teton Boulder Project Official Groundbreaking Party

Posted on: July 23rd, 2010 by Tetons Section

When: Aug 11, 2010

Organizers of the Teton Boulder Project (TBP) have announced that onWednesday, Aug. 11, at 6 p.m., they will hold the official groundbreaking for a community bouldering park in Phil Baux Park at the base of Snow King Mountain in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. Volunteers, donors and icons from the Teton climbing community will be on hand to celebrate the groundbreaking, which is being held on the anniversary of the first ascent of the Grand Teton.

The TBP, a grassroots partnership between the Town of Jackson, Teton County Parks and Recreation Department and the Teton climbing community, announced the launch of the initiative in September 2009. Since that time, they’ve developed site plans, retained EntrePrises to build the boulders and raised $244,000—roughly three-quarters of their goal. Funds raised to date are enough to begin site work and purchase the largest of the three climbing boulders planned for the park.

The August 11 groundbreaking will offer the public a chance to see the project firsthand. Burgers, brats and beer will be served, and volunteers from the climbing community will present an overview of the project’s main goals. For more info, check out the full article and more photos here.
