This is a nice, south-facing crag with a variety of lines from fun pitches of 5.10, to bolted routes, to exciting, committing 11s and 12s. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the Nautilus/Central.

Getting There 

From Vedauwoo Road, turn onto 700L. From the end of 700L, cross the creek, and follow the trail about 1 mile to the East. Worm Drive Rocks and the Plumb Line crag will be on your left. You will soon see a prominent formation directly in front of the trail, this is the Citadel Crag. Go through the aspen grove, and approach it. Most of the routes are on the South face.

Great roof crack! Follow the thin crack which diagonals up and to the right towards the roof. Look out for face features on this section of the climb. Climb up to and through the perfect hands roof, and into the hand crack above. The crack then peters out before the next roof, forcing you to climb delicately. After pulling the final roof scramble up the last 15 feet and set an anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Great warm-ups in the north side corridor and sustained face climbs on the west faces here, too.
