Description

Great route, seems like a bit of an earth journey for a sport route - 160 feet of high quality steep pulling.

The route is overhanging but there are several breaks and ledges where you can get good rests.

The crux is near the top where you will definitely feel a pump.

Of all the routes here, this one also has the highest stone quality.

Super classic!

Location

On the left side of the sidewalk buttress. Look for a LONG route upt the big buttress.

Protection

About 18-20 bolts to anchors at 160 feet. Bring lots of draws and a rap device. Trail a rope so you can rap off when you get to the anchors.

One rope wont reach! A 70 meter rope still won't even get you close.

An intermediate belay wouldn't help, since it is overhanging and you are hanging in space for the entire rappel.

Seems like a pain, but this one is worth dragging another rope up the hill! Aug 31, 2017

No intermediate belay.
This is just plainly stupid and irresponsible! Jun 22, 2017

It took us 19 draws, plus anchors...but take 20 just to be safe incase I counted wrong. Definitely get on this! Aug 21, 2015

About as long as a single pitch climb gets. 70 and 80 meter ropes will NOT get you to the ground so plan accordingly.... Aug 18, 2015

Very unique Tensleep experience. Quality climbing forever! Yes, some of the pockets are a bit dirty, but only because they are massive. Doesn't detract from the experience at all IMO. The "earth journey" comment in the route description here cracked us up! Oct 6, 2014
I thinks it's like 23 or 24 bolts even.

a bit dirty in spots but great climbing. This was the first route I climbed at Ten Sleep. Quite the intro! Sep 7, 2006
