Description 

Pronounced Voodson in the spirit of Vedauwoo, this area houses a nice concentration of some of the nicest highball crack boulder problems in Vedauwoo. There are a few established face problems as well, and some potential for new classic lines both easy and hard.

Getting There 

Drive about three miles from the Vedauwoo exit on I-80, following route 700 as it turns to dirt. When the road swings a sharp left, heading downhill, you will pass 700L on the right and Md. Woodson will be the obvious dome directly to your left. Continue on route 700 over the stream and turn left onto the closed road and park.

Featured Route For Mound Woodson

Fire Water V1 5  WY : Vedauwoo : ... : The Moonshine Wall
This is the pretty handcrack dihedral on the left side of the wall that is capped by a short handcrack roof. There is one crux near the top of the dihedral where the crack pinches down and another pulling the lip of the roof, which is awkward. This one is nice and classic. Keep in mind that V1 is 10+ climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

There is a nice overhanging arĂȘte outside the stunner cave that looks like it may have been cleaned. Has it ever been done?

If it is the tall, sharply cut, steep, right to left arete that has a slab landing, that was cleaned and tried a lot by a few guys a good number of years back. They never quite got it done, and I am sure they would love to hear about someone having a blast on it, so get after it :).
