An old quartzite Crag originally climbed traditionally by Chuck Schaap, who grew up in Rawlins and has been the owner of Teton Mountaineering. A poor choice for traditional climbing but some suprisingly decent sport routes (up to 70') have been recently added. Most routes are cleaned but a helmet and standing out of the rockfall zone might prevent premature Darwinism.

Getting There 

Downtown Rawlins (can see from I-80). Go west on W. Cedar St. until it dead ends at a dirt turnaround at the base of a steep hill. Park here and walk the dirt trail west straight up the steep hill (stay away from RR tracks unless you want a handsome ticket). After summitting the hill walk SW until at the top of cliff. When you see the chains look down; a small narrow 3rd class gully leads to the base of the sport routes. Bring gore-tex jacket with hood. Hurricane-force winds except June-September.

A difficult dyno crux to small holds on the start. Staying straight up at first two bolts. Easier terrain above on 5.10. Super fun route and surprisingly aesthetic clean quartzite except for start....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
