Description 

Pronounced Voodson in the spirit of Vedauwoo, this area houses a nice concentration of some of the nicest highball crack boulder problems in Vedauwoo. There are a few established face problems as well, and some potential for new classic lines both easy and hard.

Getting There 

Drive about three miles from the Vedauwoo exit on I-80, following route 700 as it turns to dirt. When the road swings a sharp left, heading downhill, you will pass 700L on the right and Md. Woodson will be the obvious dome directly to your left. Continue on route 700 over the stream and turn left onto the closed road and park.

Oddball V9 7C  WY : Vedauwoo : ... : The Asylum
This is a very intimidating and proud, wide crack highball. There are two versions, one that climbs into The Asylum and one that climbs out. Appropriately, the one that climbs into The Asylum is a little crazy. For this one, start outside of The Asylum on perfect hands above head level and climb down into The Asylum. The crux is the lip, and for me this was in the neighborhood of difficulty of Eight Ounces to Freedom, but with a potential backslap an uncomfortable distance onto ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

There is a nice overhanging arÍte outside the stunner cave that looks like it may have been cleaned. Has it ever been done?

If it is the tall, sharply cut, steep, right to left arete that has a slab landing, that was cleaned and tried a lot by a few guys a good number of years back. They never quite got it done, and I am sure they would love to hear about someone having a blast on it, so get after it :).
