In the throws of the crux of Electric Jesus 5.13b....


This area is on the far left side of the Downtown area. You can identify it by a small bulge at 30 feet then a long black head wall above it. With many classics of Ten Sleep held in this area it also has some of the most potential for the upper canyon. So if you see a chunk of good looking rock..go ahead and bolt it (responsibly).

Getting There 

There is two different ways to get to the Downtown area. you can ether park at pullout 16 (the only pullout with a tree) and find the VERY faint trail that leads right up to the cigar or you can hike up the main mondo trail and traverse the cliff line trail straight to the downtown.

Climbing Season

For the Downtown area.

Climb jugs just to the right of the shelf. Big moves on mostly jugs until the 4th bolt, then the holds get smaller and the pulls more strenuous. Clipping #5 is tough and painful. Two hard moves and some key foot placements may cinch it, though you could still fall before you clip the chains. A gym punk route, or boulderers rejoice!.13b??? Am I high? or was this as hard as I thought?...[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
