Description 

Begins stepping off a sizable boulder right into real climbing on the slabby lower half. The third bolt seems a bit high for safety, so dont blow it before you get it clipped. Cruise up to the roof on easy terrain. The roof section is easy intitially but gets more strenuous and the holds get smaller as you go up. Save some juice for the end, small holds and a difficult sequence guard the anchor.

Great route - like a harder version of Acid Mother Temple, albeit a bit more straightforward. Do not pass this one up!

No way in hell this is 5.12b. It's 5.10 climbing to a no hands rest before firing out a V4 boulder problem.

Welcome to Ten Sleep Spencer, there is a wide dispersion of difficulty within a single grade from crag to crag, developer to developer and even year to year. Take those little gifts with grain of salt, the next .12- might just hand you your own arse. Cheers!
