This nice secluded crag is is home to some fine short crack routes, and at least one bolted face. It is in a wonderful and pristine setting, well away from the crowds of Friday the 13th or Fall Wall. Most if not all the obvious crack lines have been climbed, but only a couple of them have been recorded. The area's namesake climb, Worm Drive, is a must do on the hard offwidth tour of Vedauwoo. Beware of mountain lions out here, they are known to frequent the area. On the jaunt out here, you walk within a hundred yards or so of a stash containing several carcasses.

Getting There 

From the Vedauwoo exit on I-80, drive about three miles. Here the Vedauwoo road will take a sharp left and go down hill, crossing over a stream at the bottom of the hill. Right when the Vedauwoo road takes this left, there will be a road on the right (700L). Take this right an drive through the gate, closing it after you, and drive another couple of hundred yards downhill to where the road ends in a turnaround right by a stream. Walk accross the stream on fallen logs, and take a right (east) and locate a fairly distinct trail that parallels the stream heading east. Walk this for about a half a mile, then cut left and over a hill at the first real clearing, at the eastern edge of which there is a small formation, and you will see Worm Drive rocks.

Worm Drive 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Wyoming : Vedauwoo : Worm Drive
This is the obvious offwidth on the south side of Worm Drive proper. It goes up a slot for about ten feet then over a three or four foot roof, going to easier vertical terrain after that. The name gives some hint to the beta. This is a must do classic for anyone seeking out Vedauwoos hard offwidths....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
