This is a nice area with lots of bouldering. There are no published routes on the bigger cliffs as far as I know, although some lines look possible.

To really find your way around, you will need to buy the Vedauwoo Bouldering guide from Davin Bagdonas.

Highlights of the area include Roast Possum Vinegar Pie (ostensibly V5), Acid House (V6), and a host of really difficult thin patina problems on a big boulder called the Meditation Boulder. The Meditation Boulder is right next to Roast Possum Vinegar Pie.

We are reorganizing this area to help you the MP.com user as per a request by a MP.com user.

Getting There 

From the intersection of Happy Jack Rd and I-80, go 2.3 miles on Happy Jack to a road marked 712A and follow that north. Bear right onto 712AA and follow it to its end at the parking area (maybe a mile).

This is a very nice crack climb! It is a very right-arching, flared splitter on a lightly overhanging wall. Start out on a decent tight hand and climb into ever thinner jams as you move up the arch, encountering one bomber finger lock along the way. At the end of the arch, you will find a decent rest before some more hard moves to get established in the vertical upper crack. One or two more hard moves at the top of the vertical section lead to a thank god hand jam on the shelf above the clim...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Free booty is free booty. I LOVE booty. What's another name for pirate's treasure? Booty! Also, leaving garbage in the outdoors is littering.

Don't need to leave that booty if you've got some sack.
