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.
Start just to the left of Wafer thin Mint, follow a line of six bolt through thin edges to the anchors of aforementioned route. You will find that getting off the ground is most likely the most difficult part of this route. However, thin-ness abounds and you will need to stay balanced throughout the climb.
Although similar in its technical nature to Wafer thin Mint, I found this route to be considerably more enjoyable as the rock seemed a little nicer. Don't fall on this thing though, as you will probably end up sliding across the horizontal knife edges that make up this route.
