Shady Side is on located on the south side of Sinks Canyon. As the name implies, this crag sees mostly shade all day long. It's a nice place for moderates in the summer. There's harder stuff too.

There are 3 main crags at Shady Side: The School, Porter's Prow, and Heavy Metal Rock Band.

The School is the easiest area and sees heavy traffic and is a great place to set up top ropes for kids.

Porter's Prow has a few 11's.

Heavy Metal Rock Band has a range of climb from 10's to 12's.

Getting There 

Park at the Popo Agie campground. Take the swinging bridge across the river. After the bridge, take the trail straight ahead. Hike up the nature trail. At the next trail intersection, split left or right depending on which crag you wish to visit.

Featured Route For Shady Side

C'est Fini 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  WY : Sinks Canyon : Shady Side
The right-most route of the three to the left of the trail. Climb easy jugs for 30 feet. The second half of this climb is slabbier, but still has good hands and feet. Much more straight-forward than the Sorting Hat climbs immediately left....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
