The lefthand (eastern-most) of the group of cliffs as seen from Highway 16. This wall holds the most routes (22 total) and the greatest concentration of classic lines for the intermediate sport climber. The routes are largely concentrated on the right and left sides of the cliff, with a few scattered in the middle. The right side is open and exposed, while the rest of the crag has trees growing along the base offering shade in hot temps. Very mellow approach of a couple minutes; good undeveloped camping in the forest nearby.
From Buffalo, follow Highway 16 west for 24.5 miles, and turn left onto Forest Service Road 473.

A seriously sustained endeavor offering the best Wyoming dolomite has to offer. Look for the beautiful, steep, white prow towards the center of the cliff (no trees at the base so it's visible from the road/parking). The feature is obvious and begs to be climbed. Start with a fun burly lieback and gain a beautiful white prow. Begin busting out hard moves straight up this prow and don't stop 'til you clip the anchors. Great edging, big & powerful movement, and plenty of classic two-finger pockets....[more] Browse More Classics in WY

After having climbed extensively at both places, any one of the four-star rated climbs at this crag would be a highly travelled, highly chalked classic if it were in Tensleep. Hopefully some more folks will check out the goods!
