This is an organizational entry that has been on the backburner for a bit. This is intended to subdivide the original entry to facilitate your finding the routes you want.
The routes here are 1-2 pitches in length.
If anyone wants to take over this section, let me know and I can reassign this to you.
Follow the general directions to Vedauwoo from Cheyenne, but then turn South and then West on the South frontage road. Cross North under the Interstate on Blair Road and drive N on FS 705 to a picnic/parking area (FS 705e) just after crossing Crow Creek (~2.5 miles), it is a fee area. Closest to the parking to the Northeast are the Adam's Ribs.

The first of the Lower Blair crags is Lower Blair III.
