Preparing to rap from the anchor on Elvis Shades R...


Follow thin holds past an undercling to better holds over several bulges to a final pumpy bit on water runnels to the anchors. Sustained and hard to read.


Second route left of the Big Man On Campus flake, or third route right of the Wild Turkeys chimney.


12 bolts to fixe rap rings.

I'm sure this route would feel a lot more cruiser if I had it wired, but as it stood, this route was awkward and hard.

Agreed. Book calls this and the two routes to the left 10- yet describes them as continuous 5.10 climbing. We hit them to "cool down" at the end of the day and found them all to be quite sandbagged! Far harder than the other easy 10's I've encountered at Ten Sleep.

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