The Schoolyard Rock Climbing
Fun, relaxed sandstone bouldering off of Happy Jack road. Not really anything too intense here, which makes it a perfect area for beginners, or for a mellow day of circuiting.
From Laramie, take I-80 east towards Cheyenne. Take exit 323 (Happy Jack Road) and turn right at the top of the ramp. Drive roughly a mile and a half until you come to a grael parking lot on the right. Park here, making sure to stay away from any buildings, machinery, construction maerials, etc. From the parking lot, walk across the street into the sagebrush and trees. Just keep walking straight until you are right on top of a band of red sandstone, which is the schoolyard. Walk down into these boulders and enjoy.
Climbing Season For the Vedauwoo area.

That Dog Just Ain't Gonna Hunt V3 6A WY
: The Schoolyard
Start low on the arete at crimpers and move up one move then trend right toward some tiny edges at about mid-height. Establish your feet then make a hard throw/series of bumps up and left to the thank-god slot. From here, top out the moderate slab above. Requires big moves and may be harder for short climbers. This problem has a very good sequence and movement which sets it apart from other routes at the School Yard. A neo-classic!...[more] Browse More Classics in WY

Check out "That Dog Just Ain't Gonna Hunt," a new FA that is uncharacteristic of The Schoolyard in its sequencing and movement. A really good line that has the feel of a real boulder problem.
