The extensive system of via ferratas offers routes of varying difficulty and length. Experienced climbers can challenge themselves on more difficult routes, while novice climbers can embark on an introductory level climb. All routes feature bridges, ladders, and granite slabs, making climbing at any level a fun experience. The six routes are split up into three distinct areas that allow you to personalize your journey based on your strengths, and all options allow for a trip across a 120-foot suspension bridge.
The Gateway Area serves as a perfect introduction to via ferrata, is perfect for young adventurers or beginner climbers. The guide will cover important information before embarking on the climb, such as basic climbing etiquette and how to operate equipment, all while ensuring you are comfortable while conquering the granite course.
Ranger Ridge Area
The intermediate or expert climbers who scale the Ranger Ridge Area are treated with some of the most spectacular views in all of Jackson Hole. The routes vary in length and steepness and feature three suspension bridges and a cable ladder. The area’s Double Cross Route — home to steep vertical terrain and two suspension bridges — is one of the more challenging routes available at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
Casper Buttress Area
A true test awaits at the Casper Buttress Area, where routes are more vertical and exposed, offering a challenging trek for any climber. Dip in and out of mid-wall caves on the Crystal Cave Route before conquering a steep granite slab to reach the breathtaking views of the Tetons.
