road closed in Spring, depending on conditions Details
In fall of 2015, the forest service installed a gate that effectively closes access to the climbing in the Little Popo Agie canyon, including the Sweat Lodge, The Strawberry Roan, and Wolf Point. Spring run off creates a situation where vehicular traffic severely degrades the road. There are a couple of riparian areas that have been adversely effected by trucks and four wheelers. Local climbers and the Access Fund are working on a long term solution to this problem, but for the foreseeable future the road is closed. The forest service has assured us that the closure will only last as long as poor conditions persist.
DescriptionThis is the left arete on the steep wall. It starts by clipping the first and second bolt of Whiskey Drunk. From here you gain the arete proper. Big moves lead to a hard lip encounter. The crux is here on small pockets and tricky feet. One more bolt leads to a two bolt anchor outside the A-frame.
An alternate start to this route is to climb the vertical face below, starting from outside the cave. This first pitch is called Sun Dance, and is 5.10b. You will be above the anchor of this route if you start from inside the cave.
