Description

Climb past two bolts to the right of the big crack at the back of the right-facing corner. Step left across the crack to a ledge, clip the third bolt, and climb a flake on an unrelentingly vertical wall. Diagonal left to a good pocket, traverse back right, and do a burly pull-up from a sloping 1" wide edge to a good hold (crux). Continue up the face to a two shut, two bolt anchor. A "Wyoming .10d."

Location

Follow the Home Alone trail for 100', passing the cave, to the large right-facing corner.

Protection

6 bolts. In late August 2006, only one of the anchor bolts was equipped with a quicklink. Lower from the two shuts or leave a biner/quicklink in the other bolt hanger.

A great route that really checks in around .11c. Sandbagging is fun for all grades!!! This too is a Mike Decker route. May 9, 2008

I think the crux is height dependent, I struggled with it for a while until my buddy found the trick to the crux, huge undercling left gets you to the deep pocket below the 6th bolt, which is a 5.10d/5.11a move we thought. Jul 20, 2009
superb line - this route could be a little tough for the grade... Sep 23, 2009

I imagine it feels much easier if you are taller than 5'10" Jul 3, 2017

Really hard 5.11 with 2 tough deadpoints if you're short (i'm 5'5). Maybe back in the day when the holds were all polished it was a 5.11. But I thought this was upper 5.11 if compare to other of the same grades in the canyon. Aug 18, 2017

Yes, Dylan, you are correct. I'm 6'5" and cruised this route. The only thing I had to fight was the pump. Other than that, all good pockets were reachable for me. I would give this route a solid 5.10d/5.11a rating still with a high number of stars. Aug 28, 2017
