Rock Climbing Photo: Ten Sleep Canyon, Wyoming (fourth edition), by Aar...

Ten Sleep Canyon, Wyoming

Aaron Huey, Aaron Huey Productions, June 2006

Aaron Huey's informative and quirky guide to the area. A new edition was due out on June 16, 2006. Worth getting, since the 2005 edition does not include many of the newer routes.

The 2005 edition has maps, photos with route overlays, written route descriptions, a list of routes by difficulty, but no index. Some areas are not covered by request of the first ascensionists who are still putting up new routes; maybe these will be covered in the new edition.

Email or call 206-909-4727 to order the new fourth edition (includes intro by Stan Price and 150+ climbs in the lower canyon).

(This book is no longer available and was a limited edition from 2006, lucky you if you own one. Its being left on this site for historical purposes and because its pretty rad looking.)

Dolomite pocket pulling, a wide variety of chill camping, beautiful scenery in an enormous canyon with mild weather nearly year round, seriously, what more could you ask for?

Ten Sleep Canyon has slowly but surely crept its way onto most peoples 'climbing destination' radar over the past fifteen years as more and more crags and routes have been added each season. Do you like 5.10 & 5.11 moderates? Are you a 5.12 crusher? How about one of those mutant 5.13 and up climbers? Ten Sleep has so many 5 star routes at every grade that everyone in the group will find their new favorite route at any of dozens of crags hidden/nestled in the forested canyon.

With some very plush FS pay camp sites and free camping spread out at all elevations you are sure to find a perfect place to pitch the tent or chock the tires no matter what season you choose to visit. The welcoming little town of Ten Sleep offers several eateries and a gas station, there's even a brewery that has camping and showers. The larger towns of Buffalo and Worland lie in either direction about 45 minutes away from the climbing when its time to restock rations.

The Rakkup Ten Sleep Rock Climbing guidebook has an initial offering of some of the most popular areas along with some new and completely unheard of gems (psst, Crag 6). Over 700 routes of what has been described as the 'buttery sickness' will get you started. Longtime local and route developer Mike Snyder plans to continue to add more and more satellite crags until the guide is complete. Accurate trail maps, crag and route descriptions along with photos of each route and all the details will help you plan your trip or day of climbing.
