Many small granite crags within the Little Tongue River drainage in the Bighorn Mountains. Generally short single-pitch trad and sport routes. Great fricion climbs, but also a few fun cracks.

Getting There 

Take U.S. 14 west of Dayton, WY up the Bighorn Mountain front, pass the parking area for Steamboat Point, continue for another 0.1 to 0.2 miles and turn left into a crude parking area surrounded by wooden fencing. Numerous crags will be visible from the parking area.

After entering the first wooden fence off of the highway, the road is closed to vehicles for the last half mile for resource restoration. As recent as 9/6/2017

Castaway 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Wyoming : Eastern Big Horns : Little Tongue River Crags
An easy 5th class slab leads to a ledge below a 3-4' roof (5.8) overcome by secure fist jams and mantling followed by a fun hand jamming romp (5.6) up to a large ledge with a three bolt anchor. A 60 m rope is barely sufficient to rappel from these anchors (tie your ends)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
