Rarely visited area of Vedauwoo that lies a good ways to the east of Central. Home to one of the best finger cracks in Vedauwoo.

Getting There 

Take the Buford exit, which is a little ways to the east of the Vedauwoo exit off I-80. Turn north and follow the bad paved road as it bends right. Follow this as it turns to dirt where it bends left, and after a few miles the road goes over a stream near some obvious rock piles. Park on the left just past this stream. This is Wyoming State Trust Fund land, so all recreation, including hunting, is allowed, so be visible during hunting season. The established routes lie to the west, up the stream. No camping or open fires.

Sandbag. This is a beautiful shield of fine granite split in two by a striking, right-leaning, finger crack. Slightly overhanging, it starts out of an A-frame, then bomber locks lead to a nasty, flared hands crux. Impressive that Scarpelli did this, it would be a positively awful size for him all the way until the final hand jam. Come back here in the fall, when all the aspens are changing. It gets spectacular late afternoon light. It is well worth the walk. Do it! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
