Description

A newer edition to the canyon and one of the last, for a while unfortunately.

The Powers Wall has great mixture of climbing on stone that ranges from vertical to slightly overhanging and has a number of routes that tackle bulges.  A highly pocketed wall that ranges from crispy, formerly chossy rock to bullet hard smooth sections.  The grades range from 5.11- to 5.13 and there are nearly 30 climbs to choose from.  The right side of the cliff is short and fairly steep, the center and left part of the wall has soaring long routes, many of which have mid anchors at the 2/3's point creating 5.11 bottoms and 5.12+ and harder extensions.

This wall was unfortunately vandalized by members of the Ten Sleep Aerospace Society FB page in July of 2019.  Four routes on the far right side were targeted in the middle of the night and attacked with hammers, chisels and glue.  The resulting mess, which precipitated the bolting ban and other crag closures in the canyon, left us with climbable but strangely altered climbs creating some unsafe situations 

 

Getting There

Parking and approach as for Waterfall Wall. Once at the falls, continue left.
