Description

The Strawberry Roan wall is the furthest upstream cliff in the Little Po. It gets its name from the fabulous arête route bolted by Todd Skinner in the early ninties. The cliff has still seen only very sporadic development and has a total of about nine routes. There could easily be 200 lines here when all is finished. It faces somewhat east and gets afternoon shade. The cliff is quite windy, probably the least sheltered of any crag in Lander.

The Roan itself is the most sought after tick on this cliff.  It is one the most iconic routes in the Lander area, and one of the best. While there are a handful of other very worthy routes on this cliff, the small number of established climbs has limited the number of people willing to venture out to this area to only a few brave souls.

Getting There

Approach as for the upper Little Popo Agie cliffs, following Limestone Mountain Road until the confluence of Pass Creek and the Little Po. Instead of parking, ford Pass Creek and continue on through the Little Popo Agie itself. Park just past a cattle guard and begin walking from here.

The walking approach follows switch backs from the parking up for about 25 minutes to deposit you on the climbers' left side of the cliff. Walk for about five minutes past much undeveloped rock to arrive at the buttress that contains most of the developed routes.

This access is impossible in high water (Spring or early summer). It is very dangerous to cross the river on foot and your vehicle would get swept away.
