Description

Reynolds Hill is a great place not too far from Central Vedauwoo, and it isn't nearly as crowded. This has got to be one of the prettiest areas at Vedauwoo - not nearly as much highway noise, stands of aspen trees, and quiet meadows for lounging at the base.

There are a ton of routes here in all ranges of difficulty. Classics would include Moors Crossing at 5.6, or the stellar cracks in the Climb and Punishment alcove. Most of the routes are cracksb(like everywhere at Vedauwoo), but some have a bit of face climbing, too.

Getting There

Drive about 2.5 miles past the main Vedauwoo turnoff to Road 700D. Turn left, and shortly after park at the locked gate. Hike to the junction with 700CD, where you turn right. Walk down the old road to the stream, and pick up a decent trail which heads towards the rock. The hike takes about 30 minutes, and is very pleasant.

Apparently there wasn't a locked gate on the road when the Vedauwoo guide was published, so the description here is a bit different than the guide.
