Great Ranges Fellowship
Exclusive Climbing Trips 

Climbing.  Together.

The AAC just launched a new climbing-trips program for our Great Ranges Fellowship members.  Whether you are into extended backpacking trips, technical routes, or glacier travel, we have something for you.

As a Club, we understand how important it is to travel and climb with friends, new and old, that share the same outdoor values, passion, and ethics.  AAC members embrace the same spirit and mission across every climbing discipline.  We’re a tribe!

Each trip includes a bit of AAC swag and some serious fun with your fellow members before, during, and after the trip.  Each trip is coordinated with a trusted AAC guide service partner. 

Not a Great Ranges Fellow yet?  Not a problem.  We can adjust the trip pricing to include you as a new Member to the Great Ranges Fellowship. 



2014 Tetons Great Ranges Trip
August 25 - 31

Choose your own adventure! Spend a week climbing, hiking, fishing, and exploring the Grand Teton National Park with Phil Powers, Executive Director of AAC, your fellow Great Ranges members, & Jackson Hole Mountain Guides.

The Grand Teton Climbers' Ranch offers the most accessible lodging for climbers visiting Grand Teton National Park. Located a mere three miles south of Jenny Lake and four miles north of the Park Headquarters in Moose, WY, it provides perfect access to the climbing in the Tetons.

Base Price: $250

Includes:

  • Transportation between Jackson Hole airport and the Climbers’ Ranch
  • 6-nights of accommodations at the Grand Teton Climbers’ Ranch
  • Welcome dinner on August 25th
  • Kick-off breakfast on August 26th
  • Celebration dinner on August 30th

With the Ranch as our headquarters, there is a wide-range of moderate to difficult rock climbs that can be done in a day as well as mountain summits that can be reached in a long day or in two easier days. Possible guided or un-guided day climbs from the Ranch include, but are not limited to:

Guides Wall - Storm Point II, 5.6-5.9

Symmetry Spire - Southwest Ridge -10,560’ II, 5.7

Teewinot - East Face12,325’ II, 4th class

If it’s a backpacking adventure you are looking for, Paintbrush Divide is a great 2-day, 18.1-mile backcountry trek that wanders the rugged canyons, alpine lakes, and scree fields of Grand Teton National Park. See a Tetons highlight reel of big views, lumbering moose, and sweet solitude on this loop starting at String Lake trailhead.

If you are looking relaxing activities, a fishing trip within the Grand Teton region offers a true wilderness adventure and incredible scenery. Nearby Cottonwood Creek, Bradley Lake and Taggart Lake offer great fishing.
