Wyoming’s Potential

Mike Williams with a great post about one of the many new routes he bolted in Wyoming this summer:

For a century, Steamboat the bucking horse has symbolized the spirit of the state. Wild and still untamed, it’s possible to step off of any road in Wyoming and find yourself in immediate wilderness. The countryside in the Bighorns will never be reigned in. They’re too big, too wild, and hold too many secrets.

    Couldn’t agree more about Wyoming. There is truly and endless amount of rock up there just waiting to be discovered. It is inspiring just knowing there are still so many places with so much left too discover.

    It’s clear that Mike is a fairly motivated climber. I perused the blog a bit only to end up at the conclusion that he is a total DUMA$$ for letting his dog chase wildlife and attack a baby elk. He then justifies it by saying that he couldn’t possibly restrain her because, “What would poor Cujo do if she ran into a Grizzly?”

    Bravo, Mike.

    Always a laff to read about wildness and a sport route in the same breath.

    Wyoming is rad.
