Bowling Ball Wall

Wyoming > Cody > Lower Canyon Granite

Description

Characterized by mostly low angle slabbiness there are several challenging features interspersed on this 300 foot tall wall.

Getting There

Head West down the Hayden Arch Road into the canyon. Pass through the tunnel and take a left, down onto the polished boulders in the river. Cross the river at the constriction and head to the right to walk around behind the Cellular Service Wall. Scramble up the dirt and talus to reach the Bowling Ball Wall. There really is an old Bowling Ball perched on a rock throne at the base of the wall.
