Crack Climbing in Vedauwoo, WY

Spent the weekend in Vedauwoo with some great guys climbing some sharp granite crack.

Vincent working hard placing pro on the first pitch of Friday the 13th, a fantastic 5.10a (sandbagged) hand crack with a greasy finish.

Hanging out above the trees, Vincent looks for a placement on Captain Nemo.

The sunset was one of the most spectacular shows I’ve seen. 

We were surrounded by storms on three sides with lightning streaking through the sky, but we had nothing but spectacular weather. I slept out under the stars both nights.

Vedauwoo reminds me up Hampi in southern India. I want to go back!
