Description 

A seriously sustained endeavor offering the best Wyoming dolomite has to offer. Look for the beautiful, steep, white prow towards the center of the cliff (no trees at the base so it's visible from the road/parking). The feature is obvious and begs to be climbed.
Start with a fun burly lieback and gain a beautiful white prow. Begin busting out hard moves straight up this prow and don't stop 'til you clip the anchors. Great edging, big & powerful movement, and plenty of classic two-finger pockets.
.12b is the original grade, but subsequent climbers have suggested a harder grade.

Location 

The route tackles the obvious steep white prow visible from the road. Look for the line of bolts that begins in a left-facing corner and moves to the right onto the white prow. There are a few more difficult routes just to the right of Bighorn Roundup, but currently all the other routes described on the Crazy Woman Crag mountain project page are well to the left of this.

Protection 

11 bolts, 2 bolt anchor
