Description

Rawlins Wyoming: home to the state Pen and many happily released felons. It is often thought of as the armpit of Wyoming, but this place has a few things to offer the weary traveler: Owl Roofs and great mexican food. The rock is quality quartzite. There are two main roofs, the western most of the two is larger and more featured. The best problem begins on the western roof. Begin on its right side and traverse left 15 ft. to the wobbly jug, then fire straight out for 20 ft. on good holds to the lip. Harder variations go left and right once you pass the wobbly jug. This place is certainly not a destination, but it will provide a good hour of quality bouldering and a good excuse to get out of the car. A crash pad is nice at the lip but not necessary. The name comes from a group of 4 fledgling great-horned owls that were perched on one of the roofs.

Getting There

From the eastern most Rawlins exit on I-80 drive west toward town, turn right (north) just past McDonalds. Continue north for about 1.5 miles, turn left at the junction (turning right goes to Casper and Lander) and continue west and southwest for about another 1.5 miles, then turn right into the national guard armory parking lot. The roofs are immediately north of the old prision on the north side of town. From the National Guard Armory the roofs are 200 meters WNW.
