Climbing in Vedauwoo
Do you like pain? If you answered yes, you may want to check out Vedauwoo! I am mostly kidding, but Vedauwoo is famous for its gnarly crystalline offwidths so if that’s your thing you will have a blast. Get those tape gloves ready and wiggle your way on up!
Here is the rock that is waiting for you!
The vast majority of routes at Vedauwoo are trad but a handful or slabby sport routes and boulder problems exist too. The climbing is pretty spread out so an experienced friend or a guidebook is pretty essential. You can buy the guidebook here.
The area is breathtakingly gorgeous and nice free camping abounds. There is one established pay campground near the main area but if you drive out the dirt roads you are on Forest Service land and can camp wherever for free.
Vedauwoo is a great addition to a climbing road trip! If like us you mostly sport climb then you can consider getting owned on a 5.8 offwidth to be a rite of passage to the American West. Did I mention it was also gorgeous?
