This is the route immediately to the right of Bobby's Got a Dirty Mouth. It climbs the obvious black streak. This is an awsome route!


11 bolts to bolted ancor

Best route I did in the area.

Not a typical Ten Sleep climb. Less than vertical 10+ climbing with healthy bolt spacing to the first break gets your attention at the start. An unnecessary runout to the chains at the top (although it could be also be argued adding a bolt is also unnecessary as the last five feet to the chains are 5.10. Getting your feet under you after the final boulder problem checks in at mid 5.11 and the last bolt will be 4-5 feet under your feet.) Clean fall looking at a 30+ footer if you blow it at the chains.

A/B is probably spot on.

A if you are a boulderer

B if easy enduro pocket pulling is your thing. The steep sections on this are cruxy.
