Many small granite crags within the Little Tongue River drainage in the Bighorn Mountains. Generally short single-pitch trad and sport routes. Great fricion climbs, but also a few fun cracks.

Getting There 

Take U.S. 14 west of Dayton, WY up the Bighorn Mountain front, pass the parking area for Steamboat Point, continue for another 0.1 to 0.2 miles and turn left into a crude parking area surrounded by wooden fencing. Numerous crags will be visible from the parking area.
