Rock Climbing – Edward’s Crack (5.7), Vedauwoo, WY

Jenny, Jen, and Clare Summit of Ed's Crack (5.7)
Day 1 of Road trip to Vedauwoo was a *Phenomenal* success. Largely in part to my companions, Jenny & Jen. They arrived on time and ready to go. We packed up the Subi, and headed out on the open road. It was Thursday, so I just knew we’d find a camping spot.

The main question was, “Were we going to be rained out our first afternoon?”. I hoped we would win the weather lotto and be granted an opportunity to climb Edward’s Crack…Watch the Video to find out!

Our planning was rewarded with an open selection of campsites. We selected #13:

After getting camp set up, we walked over to Ed’s Crack:
