BETA PHOTO: The cliff seen from the approach road.
|Open public lands (Forest Service). Respect adjacent landowners. MORE INFO >>>|
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.
Reset your odometer here.
473 immediately forks—turn left onto Forest Service Road 472. This road is rather rocky, but passable for low clearance vehicles.
1.5 miles: a minor junction is encountered—stay left.
2.5 miles: the cliff rises prominently above the road and another minor junction with Forest Service Road 496 is met—stay right on 472. Continue for a couple hundred yards until you’re below the right end of the cliff and park off of the road.
Hike uphill for a few minutes to the cliff.

Epitome of roadside cragging. Possible to camp rig...

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!
