Description 

The south side canyon gets shade in the afternoon and is a good place to escape the wind.

Getting There 

You can approach from the south side of the canyon, then walk along the rim until reaching a prominent chimney. One can either descend this chimney(difficult scrabble) or walk past it ~50 feet for a more gradual decent. You can then scramble down the rim, given the most probably path to a good ramp along a clean wall. The ramp will take you to the bottom of the canyon or allow you to access climbs along the wall.

This is a great finger to hand crack, with good rests for gear placements. Crux begins when foot holds diminish and jamming the crack becomes critical. Then just go for it!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
