Description 

A granite alcove at the west end of the Shoshone Canyon. Mostly sport climbing with several trad routes thrown in for good measure. There are about 30 routes with grades ranging from 5.6 to 5.12+. The ground is flat so belaying and spreading out is easy. Other than the walk along the highway to get there, this is a kid friendly site.

Getting There 

Drive west from Cody into the Shoshone Canyon and park on the right before the entrance to the first short tunnel. A five minute walk west through the two short tunnels is a bit harrowing with cars whipping by on the highway a few feet from your head, but over with quick.
