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 with a difficult slab on holds that all seem to be facing the wrong direction. Continue questing up until the 4th bolt or so where you can get a good rest and remember to breathe again. The 2nd half of the climb weaves up and right, occasionally using the arete, until finally moving left to the chains at the top.
I thought the crux was on the slab right after the 2nd bolt. Really fun and a different style of climb for Tensleep.
