The town of Cody is located in Wyomings NW corner, about 50 miles east of the Yellowstone National Park east entrance. Climbing opportunities abound in the Shoshone Canyon West of town, offering sandstone bouldering, limestone and granite sport cragging, and a variety of traditional routes primarily on the granite. In addition, world class ice climbing with an air of adventure can be found 40 miles south of town along the South Fork of the Shoshone River.
The Shoshone canyon is located on Hwy 14/16/20 a few miles west of the city limits. The turn off for cedar mountain bouldering is the first left after entering the canyon. It is the obvious switchback dirt road leading up the mountain. The limestone crags are on the north side of the road on Rattlesnake Mountain accessed by the only two right turn options in the canyon. The granite areas are at the west end of the canyon near the tunnels and deep in the canyon near the river.
