Home Alone is a complex of south, east, and north-facing walls and alcoves low in Ten Sleep Canyon. On 90 degree days when other formations are baking in the sun, the north and east-facing climbs (a .12+/13 project, two .12s, two .11s, several .10s, a 9, and an 8) offer a welcome respite from the heat.
Park at the first pullout up-canyon from town and cross the highway to the prominent Father Figure pillar (route 18 in Huey's guidebook). Walk east up the shoulder for 100', then follow a trail to a narrow cave (routes 20-22). Continue past the cave to a large, right-facing corner (routes 23-26), then scramble over two boulders to a U-shaped amphitheater (routes 27-32). Three more south-facing routes (33-35) are located on a wall uphill fom the amphitheater. Routes 18-32 are within 10'-150' of the highway.
