One Wild Challenge
One Wild Challenge is an opportunity for strong spirited, adventuresome Tulsans to make a positive impact on their Tulsa Zoo while challenging themselves to reach greater heights. By accepting an aggressive fundraising goal and elite physical challenge, your participation will make a difference in the lives of all families in Green Country, not to mention our Nature Exchange program.
The Grand Teton (13,770 feet) is America's most famous mountain and one of the world's classic climbs. It offers limitless mountaineering possibilities to both aspiring and experienced mountaineers. The distance is 11 miles one way, 8 of which is on a trail (sometimes quite steep). Vertical gain is 5,000 feet to the Lower Saddle and another 2,100 feet to the summit: 7,100 feet total. Between four and six creeks are crossed en route allowing us to hydrate and carry little water.
