Never climbed Fremont Canyon, looking at going to the Bridge area. What do you use as anchors to rap down? Saw a couple of trees and handrails and fence posts in the pics, those all anchor material?

2nd on "what no rope". Get over to the "chief" or "wine and roses" area. This area has bolted anchors at the top of most routes. Do "wine and roses", "Thanatos", "terminator goes to the prom", "chief", "cashew corner", and "Kiss of the spider woman".

The bridge area is great but I think the "chief" area is better. Also perfect camping spot right there.

"Kiss of the spider woman" will take some scouting but the view at the bottom is amazing.

Aiding.

The thought of rapping into a brand new area is a bit exciting, eh? I wanna go there one day soon.

If you rap in, you know you can't give up on a route!

Well, yeah. Did you want 60' tall, or this:

You can leave a fixed line in place. Or rap down to (into) the river.

Fremont is totally awesome, had a blast there this past weekend, that the normal water level in the canyon or will it get higher?

Water level goes up or down with irrigation needs, spring runoff from mountains, and drought. About 20 years ago, I hiked the entire bottom in the winter after the reservoir discharge was reduced to a trickle which had mostly frozen over.

Fremont is my home crag and it is a great place for an aspiring trad climber. Almost all routes can be TR'd if you are just learning and good gear on most climbs for leading. Check out the Power Tower wall, Narrows (slab area), and the Pathfinder wall (Honemaster) for some of the canyons best long routes. There is so much more good stuff besides the bridge area and west canyon. Just make sure you have a way to ascend the rope as it is easy to rap into the wrong route. We rap with 2 ropes, one for the rap and one on belay. Mt. sports in Casper has the new guide book.

Hello Canyon climber!

I have only climbed in Fremont twice but loved it! In the Dillingham blues area we fixed off the bridge itself, is this considered OK? just curious about the local ethic.

My parents are in Lander so I frequent Wyo and need to get back over there to Fremont soon!
