Description 

This is the pretty canyon just east of the town of Afton. A popular hiking destination, the "Periodic Spring", is at the end of the well maintained road.
There is a lot of limestone in this canyon and room for a lot, like hundreds, of moderate sport routes. However, many of the fins that make up the canyon are of dubious quality. Finding the good bits is the challenge.


Getting There 

Turn east on 2nd Ave in Afton. Follow the road until it enters the canyon (turns to dirt). It winds up the canyon along the stream for a few miles with a number of ponds and hiking trails being on either side. Rock fins start appearing immediately.

AN excellent climb requiring hard overhanging pulls and delicate footwork. The route ascends the arete and face at the far right side of the north face. Its esiest to belay it from beneath the arete and not from the ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
