Have you ever wondered what it might feel like to climb and actually stand atop the Grand Teton? Visitors can now experience the Grand's 13,770-foot summit via a web-based interactive program, and make this exhilarating trek without the physical effort, and possible anxieties associated with such a lofty goal. Come take a virtual climb of Grand Teton National Park's most iconic peak and discover the legacy of mountaineering in the Teton Range of northwestern Wyoming.
eClimbers can control images and sounds at each stop along their virtual tour, and they can activate videos to explore the human and natural history related to each location along the climbing route. By hovering their mouse over a photograph, hidden images will be revealed through the click of a button. eClimbers can also use videos to imagine scrambling over boulder fields and wedging through rocky alcoves as they experience the thrill of climbing and drama of a mountain rescue in a virtual landscape.
The Grand Teton eClimb is the third in a series of web-based, interactive programs that help orient visitors and educate them about the wonders of Grand Teton National Park. A String Lake eHike and videos of the Moose-Wilson corridor offer two other opportunities for virtual tours of the park as well.
