Description 

Cranner Rock was an important passing/stopping point for pioneer era travelers. Near Cranner was an important Pony Express post as well.
Nowadays it serves as a bare-bones rest-stop with a pit toilet and historical/informative placard.
It's location: northside 287, northwest of 220 junction.

The climbs at Cranner are within easy walking distance (up to 15 minuites) from parking area.
Climbing is mostly short granite cracks (some being extremely short).
Certainly not a destination but if you have a few hours to burn when you're passing, then check 'er out.
Keep a good, clean, low-profile and don't instigate phone calls of complaint from other travelers passing thru.

Cranner Rock Roof Crack 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ 29 E6 6c  Wyoming : Sweetwater Rocks : Cranner Rock
Super steep climbing up a finger and hand crack to a difficult boulder problem pulling over a roof. The first half is mostly slopey jugs outside the crack. Start with a yellow c3 or similar size to protect the first difficult move, pulling a small overhang on slopers. Next, place a green c3 or equivalent from a good stance. Just above this is a great nut placement, it's actually been fixed for the last few years. Next go to a left slopey crimp outside the crack, get a crappy right hand jamb...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
