|Originally I added this climb to the MP database, though I now realize that I had actually climbed Face Value! Description above is now correct, allowing for the mislabelling of route numbers in Stewart Green guide. Miss Wyoming is distinctly harder than the two neighboring routes.|

|Definitely worth marking the middle of your 60 rope (I read the tip too late), our 60m didn't quite cut it.|

Very nice route.
I felt their were three cruxes - one smearing, one crystal climbing, and one mantel.
The bottom 1/3 is smooth, smearing granite, the middle third is a pegmatite with crystals, and the last 1/3 is highly featured granite the same as the top of Face Value.
It is thoughtfully bolted.
60m will easily get you to the top of the boulder at the base - my rope is bi-colored so no question where the middle is.
9 bolts plus the anchors.

A beautiful and fun face climb and fairly sustained. I gave it a PG-13, because the opening move to the first bolt was a little spicy, and if you came off before clipping, it could be a pretty good tumble down the ramp. Also, a 70m rope gets you up and down this from the dirt, as opposed to belaying from the top of the ramp/boulder.
As other's have stated, Stewart Green's Rock Climbing Colorado inaccurately labels this climb (as well as Face Value, Counter Strike, Moby Grape, and Original Sin). It's not a big deal if you are comfortable at 5.9 as almost all the routes on this section of rock climb about the same. However, if you go up to what Green's book labels as Face Value expecting to warm up on an easy .9, you'll be in for a little surprise!
