Description 

Way Rambo is a great little cliff with about a dozen climbs and something for everyone. It seems to get decent shade until around noon, some climbs are in the sun sooner, some later. Classics at the cliff are Slice and Dice (12), Way Rambo (12-), the Layaway Plan (11+), Serrator Crack (11), and Blue Sun (10).

Getting There 

Take Beef Basin Road away from the main road, past the Bridger Jack camping pull off and continue for a few miles until you pass a fence and cattle guard. A few hundred yards past this is a well-maintained road that angles back to the northeast. Follow this to another junction and continue back the way you came (north) until you get to a gate and cattle guard. Park here and walk through the gate (private land - keep a low profile). 100 paces down the road is an excellent trail on the right. Take this up to the cliff (trail arrives at Rochambeau).

This route is the obvious left-facing corner up and right of approach trail's intersection with the rock. This is 50M right of Way Rambo and just right and facing the popular warm-up, Rochambeau.Climbinto the awkward slot and then up and right to enter the corner. Climb up good jamming at a low angle with some nice ledges for rest here and there. Use these ledges for a complete de-pump to avoid enduro fatigue at the finish.

Parking for this crag should now be done at the split in the road going to Pistol Whipped. For more info see; friendsofindiancreek.org/news....

I found a ring about halfway up the approach trail to Way Rambo on 9/15/2012. It was next to 1/2" vinyl tape, also pictured below. If it's yours, shoot me a PM.
