After seeing the great stories and pictures of the Arizona appreciation thread and not finding a similar thread for Wyoming I thought I would start one, please disregard if it already exists. With the likes of Devil's Tower, the Tetons, the Winds, Cody, Vedauwoo ect., ect., ect. there should be lots of climbing related material so post up.

Awesome! I roped up for the first time when I was 17 at Hoback Shield, and thereafter began having epics in the Tetons. I'll add some pictures this weekend when I have some time to scan.

Here's one from when I returned about 10 years later as a smokejumper- we jumped a fire on the Bridger Teton National Forest and are at the Jackson Airport loading up the rig to go back home:

Who has been to Sweet Water Rocks before? I found this to be one of the most amazing crags I've ever visited... a mini Tuolumne all to your self. We almost got shot at by hunters on our way in. I'd love to see some more pictures. I have not met ANYONE who has climbed there. We did some awsome multi pitch slab climb up Lanken dome that was rated 5.7+. It was truely incredible. As well as some silly little A1 route on some smaller rock. Anyways who knows more?

Get this straight,
there is No climbing in Wyoming!

not in Vedauwoo, Balir, Curt Gowdy sp, the Boy scout Ranch, chimney rock, the Snowies, Four stories, Fornification, Laramie peak, The ames monument, The lincoln summit limestone (and certainly not a 5.10 mantle on Abe's eyebrow) area, Rogers canyon, on the 289 to Fart Collins, Fremont Canyon, the Bighorns (esp not cloud peak), Devil's Tower, the Missouri Buttes, White Rock Tensleep Can, around Sheriden or Cody, the Tetons, the absoraks, Blacktail butte (Jackson is, in fact, a hole [and not really Wyo anyway just an outlier of LA or Ketchum or something]) Jellystone, Sinks, wildf*#kingiris, flaming as#@&%e gorge, those crags outside of Evanston, the weird towers by Rock Springs, Casper mtn, the traverse along the front of my brother's old office building (now law office of Daley & Daly) on Gillette ave in Gillette,nor the .11+ finger crack ibid, nor any yo of the chuwater falsies on various buildings all over the U of Wyo, and the cracks on the classroom building, The new climbing structure made to suggest deto at the Campbell county rec center, doesn't exist. In fact none of the gyms exist, sweetw#ter gap is a myth, there is no Ice Climbing nor wall climbing Lander is, in fact a pipedream of some hippie NOLs instructor.
Nope, nothing,
better to stay at home in bladder, I mean boulder, or So cal, where you have it all, and don't have to put up with that pesky wyoming cowboy spirit.

That climbing bed and breakfast by Devil's Tower allegedly run by one 'Colonel Sanders'? Please, okay pull the other leg.
