Access Issue: No New Route Development & Existing Route Impacts. Details
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.
This is a great warm up route and almost a three star route. Until just past the last bolt the climbing is 5.9 or less. Climb up fun vert and less than vert climbing on pockets and edges, just before the roof. Crank a couple of moves to reach the jugs just right of the anchors. Clip the chains (nearly the crux) and take a ride into space.
This fun line is just to the right of the obvious Beer Bong (10b). Climbs through a large white section of rock at mid height before tacking the roof to the right of the BB chute.
