Description Suggest change

Old Easy is one of the foremost crags at Vedauwoo, with classic routes like MRC Direct and sub areas like the Golden Triangle and the Pelvic Area. Really good routes (besides MRC) and good rock exist here but are seldom climbed like Golden Grief (5.8 slabs and jamming), Ascending Colon (5.7 hands) and for finger crack freaks - Finger Fantasy (12a). You need to go exploring here!!

Getting There Suggest change

Old Easy is the major crag easily seen directly east across the small valley from Fall Wall. Access is by taking the Box Canyon Trail northeasterly from the Fall wall Parking Lot about 200 yards to a very large boulder with a picnic table beneath it. Several trails go up to the base of the climbs from behind this boulder requiring hiking and scrambling over broken slabs and smaller boulders.
