Exum Announces Speaker Series in Support of The Teton Boulder Project
The Teton Boulder Project is a grass-roots partnership between the Town of Jackson, Teton County Parks and Recreation Department and the Teton climbing community. The project, which is being administered under the auspices of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, will create a boulder park at the base of Snow King Mountain in downtown Jackson.
100% of the proceeds from the Exum Speaker Series will be donated to the Teton Boulder Project, which is a 501c3 non-profit. Mark Newcomb, a second-generation Jackson resident, a co-owner of Exum and one of America’s leading mountaineers, will be the first speaker in the series.
Mark’s presentation will be Wednesday, February 16th at 7:00 pm in the Jackson Room at the Wort Hotel. Check back for information about future speakers in the series.
The Teton Boulder Project mission is:
- to honor the historical role of the Tetons in North American mountaineering
– to remember Jackson Hole climbers who have died in the Tetons and abroad
– to inspire local children, families, adults, visitors and climbers alike in a singular climbing experience.
