At 80 miles in length and 30 miles in width, the Bighorn Mountain Range is an enormous playground for rock climbers. Routes vary by size, location and rock composition.
TONGUE RIVER CANYON
The Tongue River Canyon is easily accessible from Sheridan and features numerous limestone walls with routes for all abilities.
Heading west on I-90 from Sheridan, take exit 9 onto Highway 14 and pass through the town Ranchester. As you are entering the town of Dayton, just before crossing the Tongue River bridge, turn right and follow the river via the gravel road. The road ends and the trailhead begins at the parking lot.
When fully formed, The Shroud can be 100 feet in length and almost 200 feet in height. This massive slab of thin ice is perfect for an introductory experience or a convenient solo.
Heading west on I-90 from Sheridan, take Highway 14 towards the towns of Shell and Greybull. The Shroud is tucked down in the granite gorge, a few miles before the Shell Falls visitor area. Park in a large pullout above the Shroud and follow the trail downhill and across a large fallen log leading to the base.
