Mound Woodson Rock Climbing
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.
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.

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 :).
