a new area with several climbs already (everything from 5.8 - 13+ with projects as well) thanks to alli rainey and matt wendling. most climbs here are 12s and up although there are a enough 10s and 11s to have fun if this is your range.

Getting There 

Drive up canyon past Meadowlark lake and turn right onto a dirt road (Church road) there is a small sign on the left side of the road that indicates a chapel. turn right on the dirt road right past the chapel dirt road (there is a tree blocking the chapel sign so pay close attention here as you cant see the chapel from the main dirt road so its easy to miss). after taking the right follow this road into dense trees and upon coming out of these trees look for a small clearing to your left with a trail sign. park here and follow this trail! you can also keep going to access the top of the cliffs (no climbing or very little if there is) that overlooks meadowlark lake (kinda cool)

Baal 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : The Temple
This route is a brilliant line up bullet limestone that doesn't see many ascents as indicated by the lack of chalk as compared to other climbs in the area. There are three distinct cruxes on this route. The first comes leaving the flake & pulling around the bulge to the left, the second is gaining the head wall, the third is right below the anchors. This route felt substantially harder than the 12b rating and harder than many of the other 12b climbs at Ten Sleep....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

If you come in from old tensleep canyon highway, don't expect a 30 min approach. It was more like 1.5 hours of bushwhacking, with no stopping.
