Description 

Another great cluster of boulders in a beautiful cedar treed area of the mountain. Perfect weather conditions in the Spring and Fall, though it can be a bit on the hot side in summer and frozen solid in the dead of winter. The brave boulderer will find year round climbing is possible.

Getting There 

Access this area from the pullout at the third switchback of Spirit Mountain Road. Walk west toward the trees, make a left before the hillside to find the trail that wanders uphill, then cross the talus to find the boulders littered amongst the trees. A leisurely 10 minute walk deposits you above the Mid Mountain area.

A burly pocket and crimpfest with cool footwork. Used to be a touch easier until a generous round ball at the end of the crux section snapped. It left a sloper and added another move of tension toward the end. Maybe hard for 7?...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
