Description 

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.

Getting There 

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. A well used mountain bike/horse trail leads east from the parking area and a few hundred yard east, turn North and head up to the main rock masses. The first of the Lower Blair crags is Lower Blair III.

Identify the mossy slot and start climbing. The first 15 feet offer the technical crux, but you can find decent feet. Gain an easy handcrack which leads you to a shelf. Step left a few feet to the base of an imposing 35-foot chimney. The Kelman guide suggests building an anchor here. With wise use of runners, you can run the whole climb in one pitch. Armbar, jam, and otherwise grunt your way up. You can find reasonable holds for your right foot and heal-toes with your left. The back of the chimn...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
