This is perhaps the most accessable formation in the Sweetwater Rocks. It is quite obvious east of Agate Flat Road at the turn off at the second cattle grate past the Sweetwater River, where you start into Hampi Boulders and the north side of Lankin Dome.
Turn north off the highway east of Jeffrey City onto Agate Flat Road. Drive to the second cattlegrate past the bridge over the Sweetwater River. Immediately turn right and follow a sandy road along the fence line. Where the main road turns left, continue along the fence line on a fainter track going straight to the rock above. Park behind a boulder just below the rock. To approach routes 1,2,3,4, and 7, walk up to some slabs right of a brushy gulley, scramble a bit up to a long ramp leading right. This puts you on a nice bench below the center of the face, above which is route 1 on the topo. Scrambling up and right a bit brings you to a cool alcove behind a large tree where route 2,3,4, and 7 on the topo are found. To get to routes 5 and 6, cross the fence by the car and walk up a faint ridge paralleling the face until you get to a little meadow below a slabby area. Scramble up ledges for 50 feet or so to a bench. Routes 5 and 6 are above.

A wild little climb through some steep stone via stemming, jams and a wicked undercling till you pop to a big jug. Yard up on to this honker, place pro in the flake and lieback a few airy, thin moves into much easier ground. Cool movement: do it.I should add that this route was originally Vogel's idea. Good climber, and imaginative....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
