Fallen Idol /Face Dancer + Wave/Moss Cave Rock Climbing
Alex Herbert crushing Confessions of a Mask (12d).
This area includes a steep cave of hard routes, and a beautiful vertical face on the right side. The cave goes by the names "Wave Cave" (in Lander Rock) and "Moss Cave" (in Lander Sport Climbs). Similarly, the wall to the right is referred to as "Fallen Idol" in the former guide and "Face Dancer Wall" in the latter. Whatever the name, this is a nice clean section of wall with a selection of good 5.10 to 5.11a routes, and the neighboring cave has a handful of stout lines climbing out its right side. The shady and cool cave has amazing acoustics which amplify the Popo Agie (river in the canyon). The cave seeps from time to time and is not as clean or as impressive as the mighty Killer Cave.

A0 start to long overhanging pulls on clean rock. The first sequences are long moves between sinker pockets. There is a right trending mono move (left hand in the mono) at bolt 4/5 to a good shake before the crux. The crux comes after the 5th clip with either a long move off a poor side pull or a figure 4. Less steep face climbing leads to the anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
