Description

A long, slabby, occasionally balancey jog up Ten Sleep history. Climb past 10 bolts (crux around 4th or 5th bolt) to Fixe rap anchors. Reportedly the first sport climb established in the entire canyon.

Location

The right side of the alcove that contains Limestoned.

Protection

10 bolts. A 60m rope is necessary to lower off this route.

I felt like this route would benefit greatly from being 30 feet shorter. The final 3 bolt section really doesn't add anything except rope drag. Still, as a first route to ever do in Ten Sleep, you could do an awful lot worse. Jul 6, 2009

This route was bolted and climbed first by Stan Smith about 1991. He was indeed 'home alone' with nobody to climb with in Worland when he decided to bolt this route out of boredom. If my memory serves me right he bolted with a power drill from the ground up. Stan taught me how to climb in Ten Sleep Canyon in 1992 and was the original route developer there. Stan the Man!

The exposure on the last 15 feet had me grinning ear to ear. Really sharp holds, but a totally classic climb. Jul 3, 2017

This climb is consistently challenging at the grade by Ten Sleep standards. A good romp, but don't go expecting no soft 5.8! May 1, 2018

The Bighorn Anchor Initiative (BAI) replaced the bolts on this route 5/19/18 in the original style. Glue In's to ClimbTech lowering hooks. May 21, 2018

Given the polish on the holds in places, I think most people who are looking for a cruiser 5.8 will, in fact, find a 5.9. Not a giveaway for the grade. Aug 20, 2018
