Climbing in Ten Sleep Canyon, Wyoming

Ten Sleep Canyon, Wyoming. The new IN spot in the US. Interesting though, because the climbing is kinda old school! Techy vertical walls abound. More rock than most could climb in a lifetime. Pockets EVERYWHERE! About 700 routes and growing. Summer only destination pretty much. Free camping. Come check it out.

Best guidebook cover - EVER :)

Mega rope whiplash!

We've been having some fun here. Completely opposite style to Maple Canyon where we've just been, so I've had to dial the grades back a bit, meanwhile Sam is dialing them up. And while I thought the size 40 Mago's I bought were too small and I would have to sell them, they've turned out to be just the ticket here to tame the often non-existent footholds.

Alright fingers, show me what you got!
