The School is a nice smaller area, AM shade with tree cover and nice belay areas. This area has some nice moderates and some more difficult lines. The rock here is quality Dolomite and the steepness ranges from low angle to roof climbing. Expect many styles of holds from jugs, pockets, slab, and cracks.

Getting There 

Park at the in the lower campground/nature trail/yurt parking area (AKA Swinging Bridge). Cross the swinging bridge and follow the nature trail counter-clockwise until you encounter the wooden sign indicating climbing and hike up the hill until you reach the wall. Nice trail around a 10 minute walk.

Featured Route For The School

The Grand Adventure 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Wyoming : Sinks Canyon : ... : The School
The Grand Adventure is the centerpiece of the School Wall. Easly defined as the route that pulls a 5 foot roof to a finger crack in a corner. This climb is equipped with 3 sets of anchors getting harder the higher you climb. Juggy fun near vertical 5.8 to the first set, then low angle crimps and pockets 11a to the second set, and finally 2 bolts of intimidating 11c roof/crack climbing to the last set of anchors. All 3 sections very different from each other and are worth doing....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
