Who says all butt shots are bad climbing shots?


This spectacular line takes the best stone up the middle of the SUPERRATIC PILLAR proper. Unlike Happiness, this route has a well defined crux at about the 4th or 5th bolt. Props to HUEY for this Genius creation.


route immediately to the right of Hellion. Hellion starts in a small dihedral that peters out at about 10 feet. Find that feature and then it is one route over.

This thing kicked my teeth in harder than any other 12b I jumped on, including Happiness. Powerful!

Probably was a bit more perfect (and easier) in its earlier days... a bit polished now. Wonderful climbing nonetheless!

Super polished. I don't think the grade of this route is above me. Its a style I like. But I had a super hard time getting my feet to stick. I kept popping off below the second bolt from suuuuper polished feet, which someone next to us suggested we stick clip. It was more manageable when the route kicked back.

This isn't really a good climb. Polished, tweaky holds, polished holds, uncomfortable. Many, many better 12bs at ten sleep.

^^ agreed...

Looks amazing, has some fun moves, but far from the best 12b (or any grade, for that matter) in Ten Sleep. It does, however, get shade much earlier than many other routes!
