Access Issue: Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details


Obscure but interesting! This crag is on Happy Jack Road, near Curt Gowdy State Park (about midway between Cheyenne and Laramie).

It is seldom visited and you can expect a quiet day - no trails and no crowds.There are about 7 or 8 established routes here, with room for a few more. Additionally there are probably about 40 or 50 established boulder problems.

The stone is excellent - typically featured and finegrained in a manner somewhat out of the ordinary for Vedauwoo.

Getting There

Take Happy Jack Road from either Cheyenne or Laramie to about mile marker 23, near the entrance to Curt Gowdy State Park. Look for a road going north to "North Crow Reservoir" (obvious and well marked with a big sign). Follow this about a mile north until you cross a small creek. Park at the two blue poles just past the creek.

I don't know the specifics, but there were some private property issues at campjack. I think one side was private or something. It would be wise to look into this before heading to the area. Aug 21, 2005
Fun sit start low and left in cracks traverses across bulge and meets Little America for bonus points! Feb 21, 2009
Does anyone have current info on access? Does I need to get permission before climbing? May 29, 2009
Disclaimer: the following is all based on my own interpretation of a BLM map, so take it for what it is worth...

The crags appear to be on public land based on my BLM map. However, you do cross private land to get there if you park at the blue post on North Crow road.

If instead you park on the State lands (Campjack Camp Area off of Hwy 210), you can get there totally on public land.

I tried to get permission from the owner but after about a dozen unreturned phone calls I gave up. So you can try but good luck....

I used to boulder over there all the time and never had anyone tell me it was uncool, other than on this website. May 29, 2009

Parked at the blue posts over the weekend and tried to check this area out, but it looks like the small trail and access was fenced closed. There's barbwire between the posts and around that whole part of the property as far as we could see from the road. Didn't see Richard's comment from the app platform, but maybe getting there from state lands is still feasible as the getting there directions above no longer are. Jul 9, 2018
