Al tearing it up


Very shady all through out the year. Hence the name "Shadowlands". This area makes for ideal climbing conditions through out the summer months but climbs great all year. Make sure to bring your warm clothes for fall, spring and winter. The sun almost never hits the rock.

Getting There 

From the Cheyenne Crossing drive about 4 miles past the Sunshine climbing spot to a dirt pull off on the left side of the road. You'll know you are there if there is a 2 foot wide wood bridge crossing the creek. Cross here and follow the trail up. Trail is clearly marked.
