Cody Rock Climbing

by Mike Snyder

Cody is already known as one of the best ice climbing venues in the country and for the sandstone boulderer the density and quantity of problems is substantial. What you may not know is that Cody also hosts outstanding granite and dolomite rope climbing as well. Cody Rock Climbing guide features nearly 450 routes of single pitch and mulitpitch sport and trad.

Cody's granite climbing has exploded in the last 10 years. The local favorite crag, The Island has many well protected granite sport routes of impeccable quality with grades ranging from beginner to 5.13a. The awe inspiring and massive river cut gorge of The Lower Canyon Granite has amazing climbing. You'll find modern sport cragging, multi-pitch sport and trad routes and perhaps some easy to protect splitters. With the mighty Shoshone River as a back drop and a paved road closed to vehicle traffic for easy access this area is worth a visit.

As with so many canyons in Wyoming this one has its fair share of dolomite as well. The Bridge Bands and its various satellite locations, The Spires, The West, East and Upper bands feature sport and trad routes ranging from technical face climbing to thuggy pocket pulling.

The warm and welcoming town of Cody is just minutes from the climbing and offers hotels, camping, dining and a variety of activities for rest days.
