Nat's Three Star Roof Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Tapeworm Roof: Located on the far side of the form...
This is a cool bouldering area with a concentration of both crack and face problems. The namesake problem of the area, Nat's Three Star Roof, is a Vedauwoo classic and is one of the longest roof cracks in Vedauwoo.
This is the area erroneously named "The Burbs" in Kelman's newest Vedauwoo guidebook. Somebody renamed many of the boulder problems, called them routes, and even bolted a couple of them. This is a practice that is highly discouraged at Vedauwoo.
Drive for .7 miles after the Vedauwoo road turns to dirt (if coming from I-80), and turn right into a parking area and park. Follow the two track road, which starts at the southwest end of the parking area, for a couple hundred feet and as soon as you see a small distinct pointy rock formation in the field to the south, walk over to it.

This is probably Vedauwoo's most well-known and classic roof crack boulder problem.Crawl deep into the cave, all the way to the very first hand jam about twenty feet back, and jam out to and over the lip encountering a tricky pod or two along the way. To top out, follow the crack to the top (recommended but a bit of a pain to get down) or traverse left or jump down after the lip.A cool extention starts all the way in the back of the roof where the crack is a gaping chimney, and climbs all the wa...[more] Browse More Classics in WY

There's a few problems about a quarter mile west of Nat's at the south end of the long low wall that runs from the parking lot out towards the interstate. Look for a little corridor formed between the terminus of the wall and a boulder for an awesome 5.7ish handcrack.
