Description 

An absolute stellar chunk of limestone sitting in the forest. This is a great area in the summer since the sun really doesn't come around until late afternoon. Routes are all very good, climbing is juggy and overhanging, makes you ride the pump to the chains. Route from left to right are

Umpalumpa Humpachu 10a
Godfather 1 10c
Godfather 2 11a
As Wicked As It Seems 12a


Getting There 

These directions are assuming you are heading out of Ten Sleep on Rt. 16 towards Buffalo,WY. Make a right on old road 435. You will pass a campground on your right, then the fish hatchery and another forest service campground on your left. Just past the 2nd camp ground the road turns a hard right. Follow after the hard right maybe 200' and you are making a hard left up a switchback, park in the pullout on the left side of this switchback,(see photo). Walk down 20' or so and you will see a trail on the opposite side of the road from where you parked. The trail splits about 20' into it and you take the right path. Go down 500'
or so and you will come to the river, cross it and follow a good trail up for about 10-15 minutes. You will walk right into this boulder it's hard to miss.

Godfather 1 5.10c 6b 20 VII E2 5b  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : The Godfather Boulder
This route is sweetness! We thought this route was in the 15-20 degree overhanging range. All on jugs with a final crux right at the last bolt where you slap around the corner until you find yet another jug. Good thing the fall is super safe from here. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
