Description 

This area is located just above Albany within the Medicine Bow National Forest. It is a spread out zone of Sherman Granite eggs, hidden in the depths of old growth lodge pole pine and some random valleys, clear cuts, and small knolls.

Most everything is road side, both current roads, and old closed roads that can be walked for access. Distant boulders in the depths of the forest are less explored.

Getting There 

From Laramie, follow Wyo 130 then Wyo 11 to Albany, WY. Continue up the mountain on FS 500. After ascending onto the mountain take a right onto FS 305 (Cinnabar Park Rd). This road is rough and requires high clearance in some spots. All areas in the egg forest are accessed via Cinnabar Park Rd.

Vertical to just past vertical arete of the damn obvious boulder as seen from the road. Start standing with a left arete grip and thin right patina crimp away from the arete. A good foot blob on the arete helps get going. Straight up with thin crimps on the buldge after the arete looses character....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming

The Keystone Fire is burning west of Albany. Let the fire crews do their work, but these boulders have opened again!
