Climb past two bolts to the right of the big crack at the back of the right-facing corner. Step left across the crack to a ledge, clip the third bolt, and climb a flake on an unrelentingly vertical wall. Diagonal left to a good pocket, traverse back right, and do a burly pull-up from a sloping 1" wide edge to a good hold (crux). Continue up the face to a two shut, two bolt anchor. A "Wyoming .10d."


Follow the Home Alone trail for 100', passing the cave, to the large right-facing corner.


6 bolts. In late August 2006, only one of the anchor bolts was equipped with a quicklink. Lower from the two shuts or leave a biner/quicklink in the other bolt hanger.

A great route that really checks in around .11c. Sandbagging is fun for all grades!!! This too is a Mike Decker route.

I think the crux is height dependent, I struggled with it for a while until my buddy found the trick to the crux, huge undercling left gets you to the deep pocket below the 6th bolt, which is a 5.10d/5.11a move we thought.

superb line - this route could be a little tough for the grade...

I imagine it feels much easier if you are taller than 5'10"

Really hard 5.11 with 2 tough deadpoints if you're short (i'm 5'5). Maybe back in the day when the holds were all polished it was a 5.11. But I thought this was upper 5.11 if compare to other of the same grades in the canyon.

Yes, Dylan, you are correct. I'm 6'5" and cruised this route. The only thing I had to fight was the pump. Other than that, all good pockets were reachable for me. I would give this route a solid 5.10d/5.11a rating still with a high number of stars.
