|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5445 ft / 1659 m|
Ascent Trip ReportFrom US-16 on the W side of Tensleep, I turned N on Cottonwood St, which is directly across from WY-434. Call this point mile 0.0. A sign later identifies it as CR-54. At 1.3 miles, the pavement ends. At 3.0 miles, I went L at a fork where the R branch is CR-79. At 8.9 miles, I went R at a junction to remain on CR-54 where a left turn would go onto CR-83. A sign identifies the Renner Wildlife Habitat Management Area. At 11.0 miles, I crossed a cattle guard at the Big Horn county line. Immediately after the line, I turned R and descended across a pasture with grazing cows. I had to nudge a few of them out of my way. A sign again identified the RWHMA. At 12.0 miles, I entered an area of scattered oaks with a few more cows grazing nearby. A barbed wire gate on the R was strung across the road that heads E then SE to the summit of Renner Butte. This is "Point 4567" on the 24K topo. A very short distance past this was a cattle guard followed by a wide grassy turnout, where I parked.
I negotiated the barbed wire gate and walked up the road toward the summit. The road could be driven by a Jeep or perhaps even Andy Martin in his Honda at the risk of getting high-centered. The walk is straightforward. The highest ground near point 5445 is on the SW side of the road, where I built a 5-stone cairn. Two other 5440+ areas lie several hundred feet SE, where the highest ground was identified by a much larger cairn that was already there. It's difficult to tell by eye which area is highest, so all should be visited. A level may tell for sure.
Renner Butte can also be approached from the NW. To do so, take WY-31 22 miles from Manderson to Hyattville. Just after Hyattville, the pavement ends and the road becomes CR-49; call this point mile 0.0. At mile 0.3, go L at a fork just before two new wood buildings. At mile 0.7, go R at a fork and follow Hyattville Rd. At mile 4.5, a sign identifies the RWHMA. At 6.3 miles, turn sharp L just before crossing into Washakie county. Follow the directions above beginning at mile 11.0.
