About Rogers Canyon:

With the considerable development going on, this places needs more visits to solidify ratings, get exposure and (most importantly) start to polish the holds so they're not so painfully sharp. The north side of the canyon features tan and orange limestone walls blazed with tiny pockets. These routes tend to be very bouldery and fun. They are great in the cooler months when they bask in the sun and allow outdoor climbing when other areas are bitter cold. The south side of the canyon is shady and cool and features some of the best limestone around Laramie. These lines follow amazing water cut features up dark blue limestone and tend to be a lot longer. Perfect in the summer months when the sun hits the wall only for a few hours in the early morning. The highest quality climbing is luckily on BLM land, a few lines do sit on a local livestock companies holding but traditionally they have been kind to local outdoor user groups. Please respect their property and tread lightly. When top roping please run the rope through your own biners to save wear on the anchors.
Nearest town or city: Laramie
Directions: Take 9th street north out of town about 10 minutes. When the canyon walls rise up, you're in Roger's canyon. For climbing in the lower canyon please park in the large rock lined pull out on the left side of the road (as you go up canyon) just opposite the dark side (big blue wall on your right) there have been a few near misses with cars parked along the narrow road.
