ROCKFALL ACTIVITY INCREASES IN HIGH COUNTRY - July 7,2015

Rockfall activity in the Teton Range has increased significantly with the recent rain showers and thunderstorms we have been receiving.  Specifically, rockfall injured a climber near the base of the Dike Route on the Middle Teton today, and we have received multiple reports of major rockfall on Nez Perce.  Hikers and climbers should remain extra vigilant and cautious while traveling underneath steep rock faces or couloirs, especially after rain events.
