There is a certain wildness to the climbing in the Lander Area. It could be the coyotes howling in the distance at Sinks Canyon, or the occasional moose wandering through the aspens at Wild Iris or the ferocious exposure at Suicide Point; whatever the cause, only those who have climbed know for sure what true wild climbing is.
The crags from the Limestone Mountain area are etched in climbing lore: OK Corral, Zorro, Main Wall, the Eratic, Remuda, Aspen Glades and Wolf Point. Together they make up the greatest crags in the country.
At Sinks Canyon the limestone and dolomite crags run the length of the canyon on the north wall inside Sinks Canyon State Park, starting at the canyon’s mouth with Sandstone Buttress west to the Main Wall and to the Fairfield Hill in the Shoshone National Forest. The increasing popularity of the Suicide Point crag, near the headwaters of Baldwin Creek northwest of Lander, is being sought out for some of the world’s hardest climbs by some of the world’s hardest climbers.
