Description Suggest change

Sandstone bouldering in an idyllic setting of cedar trees, with an aerial view of Cody. The bouldering here is great with a good variety of problems; about 1000 and increasing. Similar to Joes Valley sandstone but a bit softer stone. For this reason climbing here after recent moisture is not a good idea. Fortunately, Cody sees nearly 300 sunny days a year, so moisture is rarely a problem.

The Stone Hedge Areas, Land Beyond and Carcass Crags get better sun and have a more southeastern aspect catching the winter sun. The Sheep Camp, Dirtboss, Africa, Mid-mountain, Maze, Bat Cave, and Roof Ridge Areas on the north side are arctic and shady in the winter months. Climbing in these areas in the winter is possible but requires a warmer day and no snowpack. Otherwise you can climb on Cedar Mountain year round.

Getting There Suggest change

Heading west out of town on highway 14/16/20, the switchback road is noticable going up the mountain on the left also known as Cedar or Spirit Mountain. This road accesses nearly every bouldering area on the mountain. Take the first left turn after entering the canyon, just before the blue building. Go left at the 'Y' and begin winding up the switchbacks. At the end of the 3rd switchback there is a turnout on the right. About half the areas on the mountain are accessed from here. Other ares are accessed at the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 12th switchbacks.
