With iconic rock climbing destinations like Devils Tower and the Grand Tetons (along with under-the-radar gems like Vedauwoo and Ten Sleep), it’s no surprise that Wyoming draws climbers from near and far. Bouldering, sport climbing and trad climbing can be found at every level on Wyoming’s granite, sandstone and limestone cliffs. Travel in July to plan a rock climbing vacation around Lander’s International Climber’s Festival, or enjoy the area’s geological wonders year-round. Marvel at the crack routes scaling hexagonal columns up Devils Tower, or Bears Lodge as it is known to Native Americans. Find bouldering routes along giant granite slabs in Vedauwoo. Or scale the jagged crags of the Grand Tetons in the Rocky Mountain Range. No matter where you go, you’re sure to find the perfect route with even more perfect scenery as you climb – or spectate. First time rock climbing? Don’t worry; Wyoming’s climbing guides will provide you with the proper instruction and equipment to get you comfortably off the ground in no time.
