No new route development is allowed until further notice. On July 19, 2019, the US Forest Service issued a notice that it would no longer allow the installation of new bolts or the creation of new climbing routes after manufactured routes were established, then subsequently removed/altered by climbers. In addition, the bolts/fixed anchors on an estimated 50 climbs at Ten Sleep have been affected in some manner that may or may not make them unsafe to climb. The list of altered routes can be found in a drop down on the main, "Ten Sleep Canyon" homepage. The US Forest Service, Powder River Ranger District, is actively working with the local LCO, the Bighorn Climbers' Coalition and Access Fund to develop a sustainable framework for route standards and a Climbing Management Plan for the canyon's future.
Home to some wickedly hard climbs and some of the more fun moderates, there's sumpin' fer evryone.
It's a bit of a slog getting there but well worth it.
A big hearty thanks to the devolpers!!!!!
From the parking area head up the main trail towards Valhalla and Superratic crags. At the large bolder with the cow skull head right and up to Superratic. Keep going right past the Sphinx, Cream Master Wall, and Blacksploitation Wall. Upon arrival at the FCR you will find a collection of warm ups before hitting Sector Shinto and the other 50 or so climbs that make up the Cattle Ranch.
