A playground for the sport climber, this wall at the main sinks limestone crag faces SE, with morning sun and heading into the shade in the afternoon. Addiction features mostly solid rock with a few exceptions, particularly on the less traveled and newer routes. The climbing tends to be slightly overhung on a great variety of holds, with a few slabby moderate routes on the left side of the wall.
Located at the top of the left branch of the trail from the main sinks parking lot - which is located near the third pay campground above both the 'rise' and the 'sinks'.

Super classic. I can't get close to describing how fun it is, unless I were to pantomime the beta with childlike abandon. Obviously, to do it justice you must climb it! Addiction features a swift bout of crimpy climbing, followed by long power moves on positive holds and finally some more intricate 'keep you honest' climbing to the anchors....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
