The City Walls are what I've been calling a set of small formations on the east side of the highway near South Pass City. After looking at them from summits at the Rock Shop for a couple years now, I finally hiked some of the area at the end of my summer break. On my initial hike I was very impressed by the rock quality, but disappointed that there wasn't very much overhanging rock out there. That fact hasn't changed, but there are some really great lines and walls to be climbed here and there amongst the slabs.

We ended that day climbing on a beautiful, slightly overhanging, wall of perfectly featured stone.
On Saturday, it was a little windy, but I topped out the wall first try. It felt easier than I thought it would.

While we've been out there we've climbed on a lot of other walls as well.
It was Sierra's project, but she finished it last weekend.
Here are a few other lines that got done.
