july jihaad and the other


Shade from noon to dark, fairly secluded as most people visit the other side of the canyon.

Getting There 

enter the old road at the top of the canyon. drive down 100-150ish yards and park. try and follow trail with rocks lining the sides (this is quite hard as there are many cow and/or horse trails) past a cattle pond. as you near the trees theres a big dead tree as a marker follow that trail through sagebrush flats. go up a small hill into a patch of aspens (this is also hard to find as you cant really see the trail on top of the small hill, but this is where the trail becomes very definite). follow well defined trail...

Joy of Heresy 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : ... : The Ark
