Toprope on Home Alone
A long, slabby, occasionally balancey jog up Ten Sleep history. Climb past 10 bolts (crux around 4th or 5th bolt) to Fixe rap anchors. Reportedly the first sport climb established in the entire canyon.
The right side of the alcove that contains Limestoned.
10 bolts. A 60m rope is necessary to lower off this route.

I felt like this route would benefit greatly from being 30 feet shorter. The final 3 bolt section really doesn't add anything except rope drag. Still, as a first route to ever do in Ten Sleep, you could do an awful lot worse.

This route was bolted and climbed first by Stan Smith about 1991. He was indeed 'home alone' with nobody to climb with in Worland when he decided to bolt this route out of boredom. If my memory serves me right he bolted with a power drill from the ground up. Stan taught me how to climb in Ten Sleep Canyon in 1992 and was the original route developer there. Stan the Man!
