The land near these landmarks is a patchwork of public and private.

Description 

The Cooney Hills are some low lying "hills" or domes of granite about 9 miles south west of Wheatland. They offer bouldering and some short climbs usually near their summits. The rock here is kind of grainy and sharp. One can find some low grade rubies in some of the talus base.

Squaw Rock is the pinnacle summit that sits high in the higher mountains west accross a grassly valley from the Cooney Hills. Squaw Rock sits on Squaw Mountain and offers some crack routes to it's summit.


Getting There 

On WY 34 near MM39 turn off north through a wire gate onto BLM land. Use the map with waypoints and the colored land status map to further navigate to the area of your choice.

There are several crack systems that could be use to get you to the spire's summit.Bob Scarpelli reports that a guide covering this area was published.
