Description 

This is the large blocky out cropping on top of Walt's Wall. Contains some great moderate trad climbs as well as one of the most challenging offwidth climbs around -- Lucille 5.13. There are rappel bolts on the top of Cats Cradle.

Getting There 

You can reach this area by climbing one of the climbs on Walt's Wall and then proceeding to this area. You can also access this area by hiking around to the right of Walt's Wall and Fall Wall and scrambling up the gullies on the left after you cross the bridge. When you reach the bridge the big roof over Journey to Coramonde will be apparent.

Hassler's Hatbox Route 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  WY : Vedauwoo : Hassler's Hatbox

This climb is great for beginning trad leaders. The climb has it all, cracks, easy off-width techniques and stemming.Rap down from the bolts at the top of Cat's Cradle. Note: there is usually a stiff breeze...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
