Bob Scarpelli on his classic "Life Without Parole"

Description 

This is a small formation composed of a layer of large boulders propped against eachother on top of a rock shelf. This area hosts both classic offwidth problems such as Life Without Parole as well as a couple really good face problems like Lethal Injection.


Getting There 

Park at the western parking lot for The Nautilus, by the bathroom. Hike toward the north end of The Nautilus. Right below Teds Trot Block (the huge boulder on top of The Nautilus that contains the route Finally) either follow a closed road up hill to the left or get on the trail that runs in the valley north of The Nautilus. If you take the closed road, follow it over a wood fence and into the fee camping area. Stay right and keep looking downhill to the right. At some point you will see a distinct cluster of boulders with a trail leading to it a couple hundred feet off the road. This is The Dungeon. If you take the trail, follow it over a fence and shortly after up a hill. At the clearing at the top of this hill head left (north) and you can see The Dungeon a couple hundred feet away. The Dungeon lies to the south and a little to the west of Holdout. A distinctive landmark is the picnic table with the firepit at the northwest end.

Life Without Parole V4 6B  WY : Vedauwoo : The Dungeon
This is probably Vedauwoos most classic leavitation problem. Start at the back of the short roof on two hand jams and kick your feet out over the wide lip. You will find a helpful crimp along the way, but the real meat of the problem lies in the contorted leavitation needed to work your way up to the fist at the top of the offwidth slot that starts at the lip. Strange sequence. After you squirm into the pod above the fist crawl into the cave and then down or drop onto your pad. This little ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
