The Eldorado Coral Club

5.10+, Sport, 100 ft,  Avg: 3.4 from 164 votes
FA: Charlie Kardaleff
Wyoming > Ten Sleep Canyon > French Cattle R… > Big Kahuna Pillar

Description

the crux begins at the roofs up top although the whole thing is quite sustained. the book had it at 10b/c but i feel maybe 10+ would be a better grade as the top is a little tricky to read and your a bit pumped while doing it. also its quite sharp at top as its a new route (i think)

Location

all these new routes kind of start in the same spot you should get the book!

[Hide Comment] This was our favorite warm up/cool down route at the FCR. Awesome moderate, but continous climbing. There is some crappy rock in places, and it hasn't yet cleaned up very well so be careful. But still lots of fun. Apr 12, 2010

[Hide Comment] Great climbing throughout. I thought the top bulges, if being consistent with other Ten Sleep grades, felt 11a. Sep 13, 2015

[Hide Comment] Hmmm - I guess it depends on how you evaluate grades, but you can fashion good rests here & there. So is it sustained - well sections within it are, but it's not a "forced" sustained route from bottom to top. But then one could argue whether or not fashioning rests is a 10- skill or not. So I find it hard to grade, I gave it 10b. I guess my final verdict on it is that the moves themselves are 10a/b and if you're good at finding resting stances it probably shouldn't feel much harder than that. But if you do get pumped it will get to 10+... Aug 8, 2017
