DescriptionAwesome granite canyon in the middle of the state!
Fremont is best known as a trad area, but there are a good number of sport routes here as well. All told, the canyon has several hundred routes, sport and trad.
The area is secluded and remote, but is actually fairly easy to get to by Wyoming standards - all paved roads will get you to the place.
The canyon is a deep cleft cut by the North Platte River, and many routes require you to rappel off the rim to get to the base of the climb. The routes often start on a ledge or hanging belay just above the river. There are also a fair number of scrambly hikes into the bottom of the canyon to get to the base.
The canyon proper is typically 200 to 500 feet deep, so there are many multipitch routes.
There are also a pretty fair number of odd side canyons and outcroppings offering shorter routes.
