Description

A catchall area for a few scattered outcrops of weathered Bighorn Dolomite spires accessed via Highway 14a. The areas and climbing are similar in nature to the better known (there's now a Patagonia poster featuring one of the towers) Highway 14 Pinnacles. Unlike the Highway 14 areas, most of the towers found along 14a require a decent approach, often with some bushwhacking. These are loose, often runout, potentially dangerous forays that will only appeal to those who value aesthetic summits over quality climbing. Enjoy!

Getting There

From Sheridan, head north on Interstate 90 for 15 miles to US Highway 14—Exit 9. Follow Highway 14 west for 7 miles, passing through Ranchester, to Dayton. From Dayton, follow Highway 14 for 25 miles to Burgess Junction. Turn right (west) onto Highway 14a. Access to the various areas/towers will be listed separately.
