INTRO

"The east side of Teton Pass is a very stout and scenic climb along Route 22 west of Jackson, Wyoming and near the mighty Teton range. The route is steep right from the start and contains sections of double digit grade and also some traffic on many days. The road follows a fairly direct route up the wrinkled mountain ridge and contains some twists and sweeping turns. There are great views to the east at the broad summit on clear days. There is an annual race up its slopes and the hill is a pretty quick in challenging places descent as well..." (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike), 2nd Edition, pg. 235.)

Note, I started in Jackson Hole and completed this via the bike path / Old Pass Road, which is closed for cars and only open to bicycles and foot traffic. Nice to climb without cars! For the descent I took the road, which is VERY fast and trafficked.
