A narrow side canyon that you can get to the bottom of without rappelling. This area stays pretty shady due to the proximity of the walls and is a good bet on warmer days at Freemont. Excellent granite with routes on both sides.
Cross the bridge and drive up a few hundred yards to a dirt pull out. You park on the rim near the route Catch 22. The approach for the Gauntlet is around 100 feet further up canyon.

Kiss of the Spiderwoman 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a WY : Fremont Canyon : The Gauntlet
One of the best 5.9s in the canyon IMO. Starts as a few moves of face to the bolt to thin fingers. Then 30 ft of thin hands/loose fingers to hands and a final short OW at the top. It can be found about 3/4 the way down the Gauntlet on the right. Look for a single bolt at the start of a nice dihedral. A great well protected lead. You can walk off the top if you want to. Two bolt anchor at the top....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
