Curt Gowdy State Park Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Unknown rock feature southwest of Granite Springs ...
This is a really nice state park just east of Vedauwoo proper. Historically a fishing and boating destination, as it contains 3 reservoirs with lots of trout. But if you take a look around you will notice lots of boulders....
So far, everything that I have done here is all bouldering, but I think there is some possibility for routes as well. I have a feeling some oldtimers (even older than me) have probably done some of it.
From Vedauwoo, continue down Vedauwoo road all the way to Happy Jack Road (Hwy 210). Then go east on Happy Jack for about 3 miles. You will see a sign pointing to the south that says Curt Gowdy State Park.
Climbing Season For the Vedauwoo area.

This is the obvious route that you see directly from the trail. Do a sit down start on perfect hand jams up the overhanging crack. Turn the lip where the jams turn to fists.Superior stone, not crystally at all, just fun!Will likely seem sandbaggy, especially for those less versed in crack climbing, but there is no way this is harder than Cupcake. Way safer too....[more] Browse More Classics in Wyoming

I actually checked with the park superintendent before posting this and bouldering is perfectly welcome. They also don't mind trad climbing. Fixed anchors are not currently approved but may be in some circumstances in the future.

Hey all, I'm down in Fort Collins and am interested in venturing up this way to check out the bouldering. Are there any guides or topos or more general beta on this area? I boulder in the V3-V4 range, so I'd be interested in problems in that realm or below in general. Thanks!

The Curt Gowdy Visitor Center has information on the bouldering within the park. This includes copies of the bouldering guidebook!
