Description 

If your wanting to climb in the morning and are looking for shade then this wall is the answer. There are at least a dozen routes here from 5.9 to 5.12. And if your feeling really overheated then just belay someone on Nine Pins or Save The Best For Last for a few seconds. There is a large chimney just to the left of these routes that must be connected to Antarctica or something because the arctic air coming out of it is cold enough to give you frostbite (very strange indeed).

This is a perfect crag for your last day at Ten Sleep, just get in a few pitches and then hit the road!

**The routes Save The Best For Last and Nine Pins were damaged in a massive rockfall in the fall of 2010. The base of the route has at least 10 feet of rock burying it and the first bolt is now at waist level. Also one of the bolts was sheared off and as of the 2013 season still has not been replaced.**

Getting There 

If your driving west towards the town of Ten Sleep this is the 3rd pull out on the left after the switchbacks. Cross the road, jump the guard rail and you'll find the trail a little to the left.

Save The Best For Last 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Wall of Denial
The name says it all, and this is definitely one of the best! Nine Pins shares the first 3 bolt with this route but where Nine Pins goes left continue straight up. Vertical climbing leads you to an incredible crux sequence and then a nice edge with an anchor...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
