The easiest access is on private land where a permit [cheap = $5] can be obtained.


The granite domes of the Haystack Peaks Region are the largest group of rocks mounds on the lower east face of Laramie Peak. Because they lie at the point of inflexion of the Laramie Peak Side with the valley and are quite big, they are thought of as something more substantial than would merely be included as rocks on the area: Laramie Peak and Sides.

Getting There 

There are 2 ways to get to the Haystack Peaks, both of which are off the Cottonwood Park Rd and approach the east side of Laramie Peak. One way is driving and hiking on public land and the other incorporates some fee charging private land but the hike is somewhat shorter and the fee includes camping.

See MAP 1 for more details.

Wilford Route 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Wyoming : Laramie Range : ... : Haystack Peaks
This route was done some 20 yrs ago by Mark Wilford & Crew. The Greenies were cruising the North Laramie Range under the influence of barley pop yet spotted this prominent line from the main Rd. Sometime during that adventurous weekend they rolled the vehicle over and as all were unhurt they kept climbing in Colorado Fashion. See pic for gaining some beta. The line is the best line in the Haystack Peak Region....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
