Comments: Left of all of the other routes on the Jungle, left of Jungle Mountaineering from what I understand. I haven't been there since this went in, but I did notice some possibilities over there.

Comments: There isn't any cell service in the canyon at all. You pretty much need to drive into the town of Tensleep.

Comments: Also, I think the name Ten Sleep comes from the fact that you have to sleep until 10 AM, then get up & go climbing, hence Ten Sleep.......

Comments: As of last week they were sitting on a boulder at the base of Killer Karma. Don't know if anyone has picked them up since then.

Comments: How rusted is "very rusted"? Some pics would help. I've replaced quite a few bolts & hangers lately and although they were rusted on the surface, the underside of the wedge bolt nut, or Rawl bolt were just fine.

Comments: I could only identify one bolt remaining on this climb if I have the location correct. The remaining bolt is way down low below a short crack/flake section.

Comments: One of the top anchors was provided courtesy of ASCA - many thanks to them. The rest of the hardware was supplied by the Devil's Head Crew (Rampart Range Rocks guidebook). Additionally, more loose blocks were cleaned, some probably loosened by the big chunk that came off not too long ago. Everything should be pretty solid now, but it's still best to not stand directly under the climber on this one, & you won't when you belay anyway as the climb angles a bit. Finally, thanks to Bob for spotti... more >>

Comments: Agreed, still a little bit of cleaning to be done on this one, but I think it will end up being a good route though.

Comments: My first 5.11 lead 30 plus years ago now. I still remember feeling like I was bad ass after sending that rig. No ball nuts or TCUs back then, but we did have RPs and those tiny Chouninard wired stoppers, classic line.

Comments: It's good to know that the pathetic morons haven't made it that far south yet, but an infestation could occur at any time.

Comments: You know I was looking through the two most recent Shelf guidebooks and found that almost all of the bolt counts for each route were different between the two books. Although it doesn't matter to me at all, it seems unfathomable that some pathetic moron hasn't called out a safety concern on that.

Comments: The last hanger is still missing 3/5/13, all it needs is the hanger and a nut for a wedge bolt. The bolts still appears to be sound.

Comments: Wow, that's a truly amazing talent, knowing exactly what routes everyone was doing before you were even born. Maybe someday I'll find some more ancient photos of me climbing 5.11 Splatte trad routes, like the one of the first ascent in colorful garb of Secret Climb One, or whatever it's called at Twisted Sister, and post those up on the internet somewhere.

Comments: Unfortunately whoever put this route in should have learned how trundle. The perched block left behind in the chimney was easy dislodged by a mere bump and rolled right through all of the climbers at the base of Staying Power. There are still 2 big blocks sitting on the ledge at the base. If you're going to bolt routes, do all of the cleaning or don't bolt them at all. Plus, the upper part of the route is botched, too.

Comments: I live in the Blue Mountain Estates as do a number of climbers actually, and if this is one of the crags in the valley, it is on private land for sure. I think the Bisque family owns most of the interesting looking crags, and they haven't been all that amenable to climbing as far as I know. Before heading up onto one of those formations, I'd make sure you know exactly whose land you accessing & get their explicit approval. JeffCo has all of the property ownership records on-line.

Comments: Specifically what looked bad about the bolts? I'm ... sure if I actually put the bolts in to begin with, I seem to recall SMC hangers.

Comments: Seems like there are some errors with the MP system from time to time on the 2nd route entry page.

This route is located a ways to the right of Seven Sharp beginning with a right angling crack near some roofs that leads up to a slab with 3 or so bolts.

Gear to 3.5".

Comments: This route is located in between Jo Bubba and Wake of the Flood. It begins off a block and goes up past a 3 bolts to a thin crack and ends at the anchor shared by many routes.

Comments: This route starts up Carpe Diem but branches right along a crack aiming for a slab above. The second, 9+ pitch heads up the slab past a few bolts to an old 2-bolt anchor.

Comments: The bolts were old and scary in the 1980s when I did this, can't imagine what they're like now.
