Not a great photo, but it shows the area.

Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This is a nice area with lots of bouldering. There are no published routes on the bigger cliffs as far as I know, although some lines look possible.

To really find your way around, you will need to buy the Vedauwoo Bouldering guide from Davin Bagdonas.

Highlights of the area include Roast Possum Vinegar Pie (ostensibly V5), Acid House (V6), and a host of really difficult thin patina problems on a big boulder called the Meditation Boulder. The Meditation Boulder is right next to Roast Possum Vinegar Pie.

We are reorganizing this area to help you the user as per a request by a user.

Getting There 

From the intersection of Happy Jack Rd and I-80, go 2.3 miles on Happy Jack to a road marked 712A, and follow that north. Bear right onto 712AA ,and follow it to its end at the parking area (maybe a mile).

This is a really nice, forty five degree overhanging, forty five degree right-leaning, tight hand crack. Start matched in the lowest tight hands and climb out to the awkward lip encounter. There is also a lower start I put up that goes at about V8 or V9. For this one, start on the tips locks just down from the regular start, crossing into the regular starting jams. This adds a couple of fun and difficult moves. This is definitely one of the prettiest lines around in my opinion....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming

Road 712a is not Telephone Road. It's an unmarked road before Telephone Road.
