Currently the second route from the left at The Crag Ranch, this route starts in a short v-slot to an arete with 3 bolts, the crux, then easier climbing the rest of the way. This route is a good warm up or suitable for those seeking more moderate climbing. This route requires a 60m cord to lower off. Good stone overall. When someone at Tensleep Canyon asked me if I considered putting up easier routes at the climbing areas I frequent I felt guilty .......


10 Bolts

Very odd crux section, albeit well-protected. Following the bolt line on the arete seems more 11-ish, for one move at least, while bailing out to the left seems closer to 10a. Maybe that makes it a 10c with a boulder problem in the middle. Either way, an interesting (at least for "so-so" climbers) climb that would be two stars anywhere except Devil's Head.

An O.K. crux, but a one move wonder. Not as good as the routes to the right.
