Up river from the Bridge area. Routes in this area are on the north rim. Fremont Canyon is much deeper at this spot and more imposing. Many of the areas best routes including "Wine and Roses" a 90 foot arching hand to finger crack with incredible position over the river.

Getting There 

take a left after the bridge, and drive .4 miles to the second left turn off (dirt but passable with a 2 wheel drive. Drive down the dirt road about 1/4 of a mile to an obvious camping/parking area. From here walk 100 yards to the canyon rim. Anchors on the rim for most of the climbs. orient yourself with plaques on some of the anchors.

Climbing Season

Weather station 2.2 miles from here

Power Behind the Throne 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  Wyoming : Fremont Canyon : Wine and Roses
Rap from Plaque-less bolts about twenty feet right(climber's left) of Heroes and Zero's anchor, and about twenty feet left of the 12a's(Storming Intrepid? It has a plaque) anchor. Trend to climber's left as you rap in, otherwise you will miss the anchors, which are shared with the 12a (maybe not the right anchors? Petro's guidebook is vague).Climb up and left past ten or so bolts through a few technical cruxes, with cool sidepulls and crimps. The climb is on like donkey kong until you get to a s...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
