Description 

This is a prominence of immaculate granite dominated by its namesake climb, Hypertension. It is nice and shady on hot summer afternoons. This gets more wind due to its exposure.

Getting There 

This cirque is located on the northeast side of the top of Turtle Rock. To get there, head toward Land of the Rising Moon, as per the description for LOTRM, but instead of heading up to the saddle between Turtle Rock and Glenn Dome, cut right and up slabs to the top of Turtle Rock. Staying right, walk across the top of Turtle Rock, and head left. The strikingly beautiful Hypertension will soon come into view. You'll know it when you get there.

Sweet Unnamed Crack aka Box Canyon Splitter V1 5  Wyoming : Vedauwoo : Hypertension
This is a splitter boulder problem. It starts out as thin fingers and slowly widens to tight hands. Suprisingly, this crack is unpublished, though it is one of Vedauwoos oldest boulder problems. This is a great crack in its own right, and it serves as an excellent warm up if your headed up to Hypertension. Running laps on this thing is a favorite pastime by many people who know about it. Respect the vegetation about the base. You are right in the middle of the Central Area, so there...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
