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.
Is it over?
No such luck. This is where you get to fall repeatedly thinking you have already done the hardest moves on the route. Navigate small holds and high feet, get a right kneebar, and dispatch the final 20 feet of 5.12.
Clip the anchors. Take in the view of the Bighorn Range off to your right and you can end your day happy knowing that Tensleep climbing doesn't get much better than this.
