Description 

Another Vedauwoo crag that is secluded yet has some classic lines of all types. Most of the routes here are short, sweet, and fat. Throw in a couple face routes and some FAs yet untouched (or probably done many times by Scarpelli) and you have plenty of fun for a day.

Getting There 

Short Wall is located about 200 yards Northeast of Citadel Crag. Stay along the trail through a meadow or cut through an aspen grove to access the lower tier. The routes on the lower tier are on the southwest side of the crag. The upper tier can best be approached by scrambling up the east side.

Jay's Solo 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  Wyoming : Vedauwoo : Short Wall
This crack starts out as big hands and fists and slowly widens. Often referred to as a sandbag, this thing isn't so bad if you get arm bars dialed. According to local lore, it was named because Jay Anderson soloed it for the first ascent. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
