Description 

This is an organizational entry that has been on the backburner for a bit. This is intended to subdivide the original entry to facilitate your finding the routes you want.

The routes here are 1-2 pitches in length.

If anyone wants to take over this section, let me know and I can reassign this to you.

Getting There 

Follow the general directions to Vedauwoo from Cheyenne, but then turn South and then West on the South frontage road. Cross North under the Interstate on Blair Road and drive N on FS 705 to a picnic/parking area (FS 705e) just after crossing Crow Creek (~2.5 miles), it is a fee area. Closest to the parking to the Northeast are the Adam's Ribs. A well used mountain bike/horse trail leads east from the parking area and a few hundred yard east, turn North and head up to the main rock masses. The first of the Lower Blair crags is Lower Blair III.

Starting up Intimidation.

Intimidation 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  WY : Vedauwoo : ... : Lower Blair III
It's surprising that this route hasn't been added to MP until now, since it's one of the best routes on Blair III. Start by climbing a nice, hand crack that angles right to a sloping ledge. From the ledge, pull the first of two cruxes up a steep and strenuous crack/face. The next crux is a challenging offwidth that leans left and offers some good grunting. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
