Welcome Suggest change

Whether you're looking for rock, ice, alpine or all of it you'll find it in Wyoming. Our rock ranges from bone white dolomite, to pink, pre-cambrian granite that will rip the shirt right off your back. Areas are grouped up by either mountain range (Wind River Range), general area (Lander Area), or well known destination (Vedauwoo). The West lives on in the 307!

Devil's Tower
Classic crack climbs including the Durrance route which is one of the 50 classic climbs in North America. A 4-6 pitch route that tops out at the summit. A great introduction to climbing at the tower, but start up early to avoid crowds and afternoon thunderstorms particularly during spring and summer. Fall is the most settled time of year. Once you have tagged the summit you can pick the first couple of pitches on a route to get the best bang for your buck. Please respect the climbing closure during the month of June.

Grand Teton National Park
Some of the best alpine climbing in the country together with good cragging and multipitch climbing such as in Cascade Canyon. The Tetons are the only mountain range that reminds me of the mountains back home in New Zealand.

South Fork, Cody
100m-plus ice climbing with an alpine feel.

Vedauwoo
If you can climb wide cracks, then Vedauwoo is Fat crack heaven. For the rest of us it's a place to be humble! The Nautilus is probably the standout area with a great variety of routes. Don't be swayed by all the wide-crack talk; Vedauwoo also has lots of "normal" cracks as well. Tape is pretty essential here, so stock up before a visit.

Lander Area
The most popular sport climbing destination in Wyoming, featuring the International Climbers' Festival every July and more than enough limestone pockets to go around.

Ten Sleep
Miles and miles of Dolomite line either side of Ten Sleep Canyon. Nearly 1000 sport routes pepper the cliffs and will test your finger strength. Plug your fingers into the finest pocket pulling around.
