The Revolutionary Climbing Wall is a SE facing sedimentary rock promontory located at the crotch of where Dead Man's Gulch splits into two separate gulches. The season is from October through May but summer temps here can exceed 105 F. For the months of Dec, Jan and Feb you will want to look at the forecast and using weekdays and weekends you may be able to patch in 8 climbing days per month as the place has mild winters.
You can expect the paved shelf road leading to this area which is on the east side of the lake to feel scenic, sinuous and narrow when driving it. Continue north on state 317 (Lake Shore Drive) past the Guernsey State Park pay booth for 4 miles to Mile Post 5 which is labeled Dead Man's Gulch and park in the pullout to your right (east) just before the bridge and near an historic CCC stone building. The turnoff to the left goes to the lake and a campground of one or two sites. From the parking pullout walk to the base of the Revolutionary Climbing Wall about 250 feet NE of here. It is possible to Mt. Bike this trail to the base of the climbs.

Strenuous moves get hand hold access to the large block (Forge Rock) but doesn't assure getting on top of it. Continue up the crack a short distance crossing a slippery face to some roof holds. Pull it down and angle to the left for the anchor bolts....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
