Description 

The Plumb Line Crag is located North of the Citadel Crag. The Crag has two distinct tiers. The lower tier has several short easy routes, a perfect hand jam crack (Plumb Line), and some short difficult routes. The upper tier appears to have some nice lines in the 10 and 11 range.

Getting There 

From the Nautilus parking area drive East / North East on RT. 700 for approximately 2 miles. As the road descends a small hill the 700L spur will be on your right. Drive 200 yards down the 700L spur and park in front of a barbed wire fence and gate.

Walk East through the gate and down the hill, making sure to properly close the gate behind you. At the bottom of the hill, you can either cut directly North and cross the small stream, or you can continue on the road until you can cut North across a beaver dam. Once across the creek, you will follow a trail that roughly parallels the stream. After about 200 yards, the trail basically goes straight East along a fence line with the stream / wetlands on your right. Continue on the trail for approximately one mile, at which point you can clearly see the Citadel Crag NE of the trail. Before reaching the Citadel Crag, turn left and head North through the pasture and aspen trees for about 1/4 mile to the base of the Plumb Line Crag. This should put you directly below the prominent Plumb Line hand crack.

This is a beautiful hand crack flake, and a great place to learn some lessons about hand jamming. You can also lie it back. An optional sit start makes it significantly harder....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
