Description 

A pretty decent cliff at the top of Sinks Canyon. It is quite sheltered and is a good option on windy days. Routes are mostly gently overhanging and on good quality granite. Almost all are sport routes- twelve quickdraws will get you by.


Getting There 

Drive to the Bruce's Bridge parking area at the top of Sinks. Take the Popo Agie Falls trail for about a quarter of a mile. A faint trail winds up to the cliff through some talus. Snow shoes may be needed in the early Spring. Note- this wall is up canyon from the Joint Wall and can be seen from the parking lot. It appears directly below the Granite Buttress as you are looking up.

Second from the left on the most featured wall in the Sanctuary. This wall is the most set forward and is to your right from the approach trail. One of the best 5.12s in Lander, according to the first ascesionist.The crux comes between bolt two and three, several options all involving laybacking and high feet. The rest of the climb is sustained 5.11 and 5.12 moves with okay rests. Cool holds and movement. Just wish it were longer....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
