Wild Iris: Rock and Wildflowers

Wyoming is picturesque! Rivers winding through grassy meadows, thunderheads dotting the horizon, and snow capped peaks rising from the high planes.

From Evanston, Wyoming we drove up to Wild Iris, a beautiful limestone crag nestled in the meadows of the southern Wind River range. The white washed pocketed walls rise out of rolling grasslands, dripping in wild flowers, with a back drop of the largest peaks in the Wyoming Rockies.

To find steep, pocketed sport climbs leave the arms feeling like jello by the end of the day!

…and no better way to finish off the day than lounging in the hammock and enjoying our favorite Utah beer: Hop Nosh

One of the great perks of climbing Wild Iris is what the town of Lander has to offer: Wild Iris Mountain Sports for the friendliest and most knowledgeable folks around town (Thanks, Kyle!); American Fork Cafe, Old Town Coffee Shop, and Lander Brewery are all delights.
