This little visited area, West of "The Main Mobscene", harbors the 2 best moderate "sport bolted" faces at the "Woo" plus some awesome cracks, lots of trees, shade (and no people, shhhhh!).
Eds. Initially this was a combined area. With time, the MP.com community has indicated it would be more helpful to subdivide this area for easier use.
This area includes Lower Blair I, Lower Blair II, Lower Blair III, The Vulture, Goldirocks, and miscellaneous bits of rock nearby.
Thus, we reorganize!
Follow the general directions to Vedauwoo from Cheyenne, but then turn South and then West on the South frontage road. Cross North under the Interstate on Blair Road and drive N on FS 705 to a picnic/parking area (FS 705e) just after crossing Crow Creek (~2.5 miles), it is a fee area. Closest to the parking to the Northeast are the Adam's Ribs. A well used mountain bike/horse trail leads east from the parking area and a few hundred yard east, turn North and head up to the main rock masses. "Heel and Toe" labels these as Blair III, II, and I heading West to East.
This is an absolute classic. Start at the very far end of the roof and work your way through some offwidth moves which narrow to fists and then hands which just keep getting deeper as you go. Near the lip there are some interesting fins to negotiate. You can also go out the back side, which is a problem in its own right called "The Dark Side of Mars" which goes at about 11+. For that version, start at the lowest point in the roof and climb out from there. The rock is especially sharp, so br...[more]Browse More Classics in WY
Route info: On Blair II, right of "Dead Man's Glove," & left of the Vulture, there is a slab with bolts leading toward an arete, probably 6 or 7 visible hangers. Seems to be solid 5.10. Name of route? Rating? Thanks!

FWIW, I have responded to this offer to reorganize, but I never received a response from the email.
Lesson: When someone who knows what they are talking about makes an offer to help, don't turn them down and proceed to unnecessarily moderate their contributions, all the while letting and endless stream of much much MUCH worse BS spew forth from the accounts of numerous other users. I used to think this site was a wonderful resource that could be used with a great deal more integrity than, say, 8a.nu or rockclimbing.com. Unfortunately, due to repeated mishandling of situations over the years my faith in this site has been degraded. I will still use it to post info, but only because your competition is THAT much worse.
BTW, responding to the e-mail years after the fact, and then claiming that you adequately followed up...it's the kind of stuff I am talking about. I hereby nominate you for Congress.

Okay, we can't change the past, I don't remember your offer from years ago, some of the other things you cite involve a LOT more behind the scenes that you are aware, no claims of adequancy were made, and volunteer work can be thankless...shall we move forward and work positively?
Let's reorganize this section now. If you are interested, please email your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get this done.
