Downpour Wall Suggest change

Faces due south, but at this elevation and in this state, it tends to be reasonably cool year round.

Steep pocketed limestone is the story here. This is one of the many crags that make up the "Mondo Beyondo" area.

Great climbing here - favorites include "EKV" (12c), "Happiness" (12b) and "Screaming Night Hog" (12c). There are about two dozen routes on this wall, with a variety of grades and many in the 5.12 range.

Getting There Suggest change

The parking area is on the north side of the road, just on the west side of Tensleep Creek, at the top of the canyon. A reasonably good trail leads to the crag.

More beta may be available at aaronhuey.com. Or there is also a guide in R&I #94, and in the 2004 July R&I.
