This is a nice, south-facing crag with a variety of lines from fun pitches of 5.10, to bolted routes, to exciting, committing 11s and 12s. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the Nautilus/Central.

Getting There 

From Vedauwoo Road, turn onto 700L. From the end of 700L, cross the creek, and follow the trail about 1 mile to the East. Worm Drive Rocks and the Plumb Line crag will be on your left. You will soon see a prominent formation directly in front of the trail, this is the Citadel Crag. Go through the aspen grove, and approach it. Most of the routes are on the South face.

This route takes the prominent dike system that diagonals right along the southeast face. The start is the crux and is heady though a fixed stopper eases the groundfall potential. Cruise through the two-move crux, and follow the line of bolts until the dike ends. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Great warm-ups in the north side corridor and sustained face climbs on the west faces here, too.
