Can anyone recommend a climbing venue for the average-Joe vacationing with the wife and kids and looking to get in a little climbing?  Short approach, easy grades, and a safe belay spot are what we are looking to find.

Wild Iris in Lander specifically advertises itself like that in the guidebook.

Vedauwoo.  Lots of options there, with nice camping.  All free.

Blair III at Vedauwoo is nice this time of year. It's got a nice base and stays in the shade in the morning.

The OK Corral at wild iris is perfect for that.

Another vote for Okay Corral at Wild Iris.  My kids absolutely love playing there, the wall is a maximum of about 1 minute from the campsites, and there are lots of easy routes.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
