[Hide Comment] If you can climb the grade, this one shouldn't be missed! There are several different ways to do the crux depending on your height. The top 2/3's definitely involves a little bit of enduro and refined technique. Overall: this is the king line of the crag and a SOLID 13a! Enough said! Jul 7, 2014

[Hide Comment] Saved this route for quite a while as I could never seem to do Go Back to Colorado in the several times Ive tried it over the years. Hoped on STFU today and onsighted it, then proceeded to fall at the top of Go Back to Colorado, yet again. This is a very quality route but perhaps the easiest long .13a I have tried in Ten Sleep, very long and multiple small cruxy sections but also big jugs to rest on. Jun 26, 2016
[Hide Comment] I can't compare this to other Ten Sleep 13's as this was my first trip to the area, but I found it to be on grade compared to areas out side of Ten Sleep. It is an endurance fest and may fit those of that persuasion. I found the crux to be sustained difficulty movement that went on for about 6 moves. After a decent hold a few more hard moves to a good hold that for some strange reason was hard for me to recover on. Then you get good holds all the way to the top but it stays technical and you have to pay attention all the way to the last bolt. Jul 4, 2016
[Hide Comment] Make sure you figure out your beta at the top -- it's no gimme on the fly! I biffed it after bolt 12 and had to come back and finish it up the following day. Great route! Aug 13, 2018
