Pre-Spice Blow 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : ... : Big Kahuna Pillar
This wild ride takes you up the edge of the pillar and into the recess between the pillar and the main wall then back out again onto a huge fin. Start on the face and climb straight up gaining the arete. Do not stem out to the main wall or you will feel like a looser and your belayer will probably take a rock to the head. If you do stem it's 10.c, but don't it's not cleaned for stemming.Follow bolts weaving around the arete and finish back on the face, long and varied, definitely memorable!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Since the Kahuna Pillar is adjacent to the new routes and the Trunk Corner, I'll add some of those routes here.
