Not a great photo, but it shows the area.

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This is a nice area with lots of bouldering. There are no published routes on the bigger cliffs as far as I know, although some lines look possible.

To really find your way around, you will need to buy the Vedauwoo Bouldering guide from Davin Bagdonas.

Highlights of the area include Roast Possum Vinegar Pie (ostensibly V5), Acid House (V6), and a host of really difficult thin patina problems on a big boulder called the Meditation Boulder. The Meditation Boulder is right next to Roast Possum Vinegar Pie.

We are reorganizing this area to help you the user as per a request by a user.

Getting There 

From the intersection of Happy Jack Rd and I-80, go 2.3 miles on Happy Jack to a road marked 712A and follow that north. Bear right onto 712AA and follow it to its end at the parking area (maybe a mile).

This is a killer problem - I get all obsessed with this thing and go back to it all the time. It is one of those maddening things where you spend a lot of time working the moves - get where you can do all the moves - but can't do them all in one push.Work out slopers on a horizontal rock to a wicked crux setting up for a throw to the other side of the rock - then work out to the peak of the rock, and mantle over the top.Fun!

Someone took the anchor off a project up at Vedauwoo (Coyote Rocks) sometime this past week. The anchor was extensive, involving several pieces of gear and lots of sling. I had left this anchor on top of the route because it is a hindrance on my partners to get them to go belay me on the thing because it is fairly out of the way. With the anchor in place I could just lower off and clean my gear and leave, instead of having to either go all the way around the formation or solo up and down the easy 5.7 nearby. Both options are time consuming and with the shorter days and shrinking weather window I just wanted to save some time, not so much for my sake but for my friends. As soon as I get my hands on a drill I was planning on putting in some bolts, the anchor was just temporary. If you took the anchor and are reading this, please return my stuff to me. I can understand the appeal of a pile of booty, I know, I've found plenty myself, and of the dozens of cams, slings, biners, etc. I have only NOT returned one or two nuts and a couple crappy leaver biners to their original owners. Please repay the favor. You can message me on this site and I will get back in touch with you with no hard feelings. If anyone has any info that leads to the recovery of my gear, there is a reward available, so please message me.

Don't need to leave that booty if you've got some sack.
