Climbing Area Description
Located in Southeastern Wyoming, Vedauwoo is renowned for its incredible off-width climbing. Inside the Medicine Bow - Routt National Forest, with over 900 routes, Vedauwoo rock is comprised of 1.4 billion year old Sherman Granite speckled with sharp feldspar crystals sure to rough up even the hardest climbers.

At an altitude of 8,000, this wonderland is surrounded by dense pine forests, aspen groves and an abundance of wildlife. Make sure to bring plenty of large cams to protect these wide cracks, and don't overlook the high quality finger/hand cracks and slab climbing.

Best time of year to climb is mid-April through October. Weather can change quickly, so pushing either end of the season is a gamble.
