  • Description 

    This rock feature sits above the Granite Springs reservoir in the State Park and offers a good deal of potential lines all around it. The Sherman granite is typical for the area, mostly solid but with variable loose/crumbly bits. There are lots of nice cracks, chimneys, and flakes of varying difficulty. It s relatively unknown as to FAs and history it would seem.

    Getting There 

    From the Happy Jack campsites in the state park, walk west on Granite Springs Rd., down the hill to the left and over the bridge that goes across the reservoir. Either make a sharp right and follow the shore until you hit the rock (off the Cow Creek Trail), or, if in a vehicle, turn right at your first opportunity and park near a campsite and walk over the hill to get to the south side of the formation. Try to stay on trails as dictated by the park.

    Pitch 1. Scramble up a varied and low angle crack (hands to OW) that cuts up and then left following a left-facing corner - 5.3ish. Move around a crumbly boulder on its left, then walk about 100 feet to your right up the ramp until your rope runs out a the base of a huge cove/chimney. Extend your pro on this or rope drag will get bad.Pitch 2. head up the cove/chimney thinking 3-dimensionally as there are huge holds and ledges all around you. Use the large flake if you dare for good hand jams ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
