Description 

Pleasant little, out-of-the-way bouldering. Has a few good cracks, a few good face problems, and a few awesome hard problems (like the NFL dyno).

Getting There 

From the parking area below Walt's Wall, follow the trail towards the upper parking lot. After crossing the fence on a wooden staircase thing, continue about fifty yards further and turn left, angling for the rib of rock. Walt's Rib has three tiers (more or less) and Out of Site should be visible on the right side of the lowest tier.

NFL Dyno V11 8A  Wyoming : Vedauwoo : Walt's Rib
Start on the big, football-shaped sloper, and dyno to the sloper at the lip. This attracted many suitors before it finally went down at the Vedauwoo bouldering competition in 2005. While the stand is a nice test of power, the full visual line climbs in from a low jug down and right (and is surprisingly not dabby), adding a few fun and flowing moves of roughly V6, creating a really fantastic dyno problem. The low start was first done by Chris Schulte....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming

Has the NFL dyno been done yet? There's chalk all over the start like someone has been on it recently.
