VEDAUWOO Climbing


Vedauwoo is a climbing mecca located 10 miles from Laramie. The area is a sea of outcrops of 1.4-billion-year-old Sherman granite. The outcrops have been sculpted into rounded, fissured domes by eons of weathering and the rock has a pinkish hue, streaked with brightly colored lichen. The outcrops are full of crack climbs. Many of these cracks are wide, and Vedauwoo has earned the reputation for some of the most physically demanding offwidths in North America. Although climbers come from far and wide to climb these offwidths, a good mix of other types of climbing can be found here as well. 


The first time I climbed in Vedauwoo was in August 2014, for two afternoons during which we climbed 6 routes, on the drive between Devil's Tower in Wyoming and Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. I only got a flavor for the climbing on this quick trip, but I knew someday I would come back. In June 2019, I moved to Boulder, and Vedauwoo was only 2.5 hours drive away. As soon as I could, I made plans to climb for a few days in Vedauwoo and give it more of a serious go than the first time I had blitzed through. 

Since Vedauwoo is only about 2.5 hours from Boulder, I just keep a list of the climbs I've done there (on this page). Below the list, I've also included my original trip report from my first major trip to the area.
