Established in 40F/foggy temps...late August in the Bighorns. The best intermediate sport route up here. Can easily be done as one long pitch.
P1-Steep pocketed slab. Tricky off the ground and getting progressively easier to the belay ledge. 5.8 4 bolts
P2-Easy slab to small shelf, pull crux bulge and wander up clean slab with very cool chert (brown extrusive mineral) holds to chains. 5.9 7 bolts


The right-hand bolted route from the ground. From the midway anchors, stay straight up (the furthest right 2nd pitch option is Prospects of Poverty). Two raps with a single rope.


11 bolts and chain anchors.
