This is a small formation composed of a layer of large boulders propped against eachother on top of a rock shelf. This area hosts both classic offwidth problems such as Life Without Parole as well as a couple really good face problems like Lethal Injection.

Getting There 

Park at the western parking lot for The Nautilus, by the bathroom. Hike toward the north end of The Nautilus. Right below Teds Trot Block (the huge boulder on top of The Nautilus that contains the route Finally) either follow a closed road up hill to the left or get on the trail that runs in the valley north of The Nautilus. If you take the closed road, follow it over a wood fence and into the fee camping area. Stay right and keep looking downhill to the right. At some point you will see a distinct cluster of boulders with a trail leading to it a couple hundred feet off the road. This is The Dungeon. If you take the trail, follow it over a fence and shortly after up a hill. At the clearing at the top of this hill head left (north) and you can see The Dungeon a couple hundred feet away. The Dungeon lies to the south and a little to the west of Holdout. A distinctive landmark is the picnic table with the firepit at the northwest end.

This is another fat crack boulder problem. It has two versions, one that finishes in The Dungeon and one that finishes out. Both versions start with hands on the opposite side from where your ending. In either case start on hands and then work through an offwidth pod in the middle of the roof. One side finishes on tough flared hands with an easy offwidth topout and the other finishes on tough deep fists/big hands that lead to a more difficult offwidth topout. Its only detraction is how clos...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
