Start on Rawhide Arch, but don't go far on it. Cut right and up to an overlap with a bolt above it. Go straight up past a couple bolts and belay at a single bolt.
P2- keep straight up and merge with the upper face on Rawhide Arch. Belay and rappel from a tree.


From approach trail head left. Hike to the upper tier of the face. Rawhide Arch will be obvious at the right side of the upper tier. Start here.


couple bolts, NC trad rack

Bolts are not inspiring... looks like they need replacing. Probably could use another bolt for the first pitch anchor as well. Or just get rid of that quick link. Overall, okay route, nothing special but good position on the second pitch. Was wishing I had doubles on first pitch.

New bolts care of the ASCA as of 10/12.

Bolted on rappel by Danny Caldwell in 1988. The name 'Wyoming Dick' has nothing in particular to do with the route but refers to a climber visiting Cedar from Wyoming and his attitude toward his friendly hosts the weekend Sean and I did what we believed to be the first ascent of the route in its bolted form. Gus Glitch of Charlotte thinks the late Shane Cobourn made a lead exploration of this route in 1986 or '87 and Shane was certainly capable of leading this climb boldly with no bolts. Overall this is not a highly recommended route but for diehard Cedar aficianados it is there to tick and it does have its moments, including the airy and interesting roof problem and a nice face crux higher on the route's headwall. Protect carefully below the roof and avoid drag with long slings or maybe double rope tactics. Take a light, widely-sized rack featuring micro nuts as well as the usual range of nuts and cams from 1/4" to 2-1/2" with no duplicates necessary.

I would recommend doing both pitches as one. The rope drag shouldn't be terrible if you sling long the first few pieces below the roof like Mark suggested. I didn't like how low the bolts were at the P1 belay. If you can skip it, do it. I also traversed left after the rap tree to get to the anchors on Caught Up.
