Endless ridges and peaks of granite, similar to Vedauwoo but smoother and more hand sized cracks. Driving anywhere in the range will leave your jaw on the floor while looking at the possibilities. The only problem is that most of the land is private, seek out the little public land.
Most Climbing is between 6,000 and 7,000 feet and is climble in all seasons depending on the weather. There are good weather windows in the winter and days far to hot for climbing in the summer. Main issue in winter is access, roads can have feet of snow for months.
Laramie Peak at around 10,000 ft. is a landmark seen from many places in the range.
This is a huge area, you can get here from many places in South East Wyoming. You can easily get lost in the backroads, so bring a map and maybe extra gas. This driving is as remote as you can get in the lower 48. All access is Seasonal/Conditional depending on snow.
From Rock River take Fetterman Road 40-100 miles, all dirt.
From I-25 there are many access points, go West: E. Johnson Road, Fish Creek Road (El Rancho Road exit), and S. from Douglas.
There are little (towns?) crossroads throughout the range with NO SERVICES. Esterbrook, Binford, Hubbard's Cupboard*

Time in Space climbs a bouldery 45 degree overhanging crux start and continues through all sizes from hands to chicken wings.Time in Space is a steep burl-fest of a climb. The gear is bomber and the jams are solid, so give it your best and fight the pump. The name was inspired by the feeling you get in the first couple moves..."Were am I?... like in time or space." OR it was coined by the effect of poor pump management because if you don't keep something for the top your going to spend a lot of ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
