Comments: Great climbing throughout. I thought the top bulges, if being consistent with other Ten Sleep grades, felt 11a.

Comments: Bit of a slopey start to a RAD horn feature, really cool arete climbing above. Thought this one was spectacular.

Comments: This thing is a blast. Choose wisely; many sucker holds exist.

Comments: Kinda dirty down low, slopey up high - least desirable of routes on this arete. also felt 10+ up top.

Comments: Harder than the route one to the left that is rated 10d - very sustained, but good fun climbing probably 10+

Comments: Excellent route. Fun, sustained, solid 5.10 climbing on big, straightforward holds.

Comments: Tricky finish to clip the anchor; big holds down low.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Valhalla : Superratic Pillar : You Got Nothin on Me (5.10a)

Comments: Great route; cool flake with layback moves, face moves, pockets. Diverse and enjoyable movement throughout.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Valhalla : Superratic Pillar : Big Yellow Butterfly (5.11a)

Comments: Fun, yet a bit awkward dihedral/crack start with a cool stem to clip the lower anchor. Upper section is bomber slightly overhung pockets/jugs that is perfectly bolted for confidence. Highly recommend.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : French Cattle Ranch : Sector Shinto : Euro-trash Girl (5.10b)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 11, 2015

Comments: Aesthetic, with great exposure on the upper half. Yes, the traverse bolt is a little awkward, but I don't think it takes away from the fun-factor of the route. Highly recommended.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : The Ice Plant : Ghost of Richard (5.10a)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 11, 2015

Comments: Fantastic route. Looks slabby from below, but excellent unique small features for feet exist throughout. great movement with cool finish up flake/crack system.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : The Ice Plant : Ice Station Zebra (5.10c)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 11, 2015

Comments: Crack was fun; layback with solid feet and many holds/feet outside crack - never really required to jam with more than one extremity. Upper pitch/arete was definitely slabby and difficult to read; less enjoyable.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Wall of Denial : Insane Hound Posse (5.10b)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 11, 2015

Comments: Easy start on big holds/flake to slightly overhung jugs. Sustained upper section is a bit pumpy with interesting balancy hand jam finish. Loved it.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Mondo Beyondo : Dream Land : Hooray for Boobies (5.10b)

Comments: Felt a bit harder than Beer Bong; bit more sustained with slightly smaller pockets, but another great route with a cool finish.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Mondo Beyondo : Dream Land : Beer Bong (5.10b)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 11, 2015

Comments: This thing is a blast. Definitely a novelty, but a ton of fun. Cruxy start to nice pockets - bong portion itself is super unique and allows for many different ways to get to the chains.


Location: WY : Lander Area : Wild Iris : The Main Wall : Cowboy Poetry : The Devil Wears Latex (5.10c)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Jul 22, 2015

Comments: Fun Climb; short and sweet. 10c only if you climb directly up through the bolt line. 10a/b if you move out to the seam left of the bolt line.

Comments: Great climb; tricky start (probably 10a) to bigger holds.

Comments: This climb is a blast; jams and and pockets with a cool finish. Fully bolted; no gear needed. Less slabby than I expected.

Comments: The most fun you will ever have on a single pitch 5.8 sport route: beautiful, giant pockets the whole way.

Comments: Not a big fan of this route; a fall while clipping lower bolts will result in decking. poor feet throughout; that being said, some sweet layback moves.
