Description Suggest change

The climbing on the granite in Sinks is amazing. The limestone gets most of the attention, but there are some incredible trad and sport routes here including "Foundation," which is one of the best 5.12Cs in Lander.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive up Sinks Canyon Road past the limestone to the parking lot for Bruce's Bridge and the popular waterfall trail. Approach varies by crag.
