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.
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.

Steep arete on the Cube Boulder. Left hand slaps the arete, left foot heel hooks, right hand and foot work small crimps. Really fun. The crux comes right before the last bolt, but really this is like roped bouldering. This is my personal favorite route at the Sanctuary....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
