Some of the problems

Description 

This is a nice cluster of boulders about 1/4 mile from the parking area. Contains 3 established problems and a couple of highball open projects.

I mostly boulder by myself at lunch so I don't usually have a spotter - there is a beautiful overhanging highball crack here, but you would want lots of pads and spotters I think. Also a similar highball arete...

Great stone here, beautiful setting. IMBA and the State Parks guys are putting in some kick ass mountain bike trails in here... great service to the whole area!


Getting There 

Drive down the Curt Gowdy road into the park towards Granite Reservoir. The first parking area to the right is called Aspen Grove. Drive in here and park. Cross the gate on the road and look for a singletrack to the right in about 50 feet. Follow the singletrack for about a 1/4 mile until you reach the obvious boulders.

Aspen Arete can be started from the left, but the classic variation climbs the juggy flake system on the right. Reservoir Dogs can be seen to the right.

Aspen Arete V3 6A WY : Vedauwoo : ... : Aspen Grove Boulders
This is the obvious, highball arete on the Northwest end of the wall split by Reservoir Dogs. The climbing on juggy but hollow flakes is easy and fun until the climber must reach up and left to establish himself in a thin crack 15 feet off the deck. The final, finger crack is of little difficulty, but use caution when relying and the friction of the lichenous rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
