Comments: Tricky finish to clip the anchor; big holds down low.

Comments: Great route; cool flake with layback moves, face moves, pockets. Diverse and enjoyable movement throughout.

Comments: Fun, yet a bit awkward dihedral/crack start with a cool stem to clip the lower anchor. Upper section is bomber slightly overhung pockets/jugs that is perfectly bolted for confidence. Highly recommend.

Comments: Aesthetic, with great exposure on the upper half. Yes, the traverse bolt is a little awkward, but I don't think it takes away from the fun-factor of the route. Highly recommended.

Comments: Fantastic route. Looks slabby from below, but excellent unique small features for feet exist throughout. great movement with cool finish up flake/crack system.

Comments: Crack was fun; layback with solid feet and many holds/feet outside crack - never really required to jam with more than one extremity. Upper pitch/arete was definitely slabby and difficult to read; less enjoyable.

Comments: Easy start on big holds/flake to slightly overhung jugs. Sustained upper section is a bit pumpy with interesting balancy hand jam finish. Loved it.

Comments: Felt a bit harder than Beer Bong; bit more sustained with slightly smaller pockets, but another great route with a cool finish.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Dream Land : Beer Bong (5.10b)

Comments: This thing is a blast. Definitely a novelty, but a ton of fun. Cruxy start to nice pockets - bong portion itself is super unique and allows for many different ways to get to the chains.

Comments: Fun Climb; short and sweet. 10c only if you climb directly up through the bolt line. 10a/b if you move out to the seam left of the bolt line.

Comments: Great climb; tricky start (probably 10a) to bigger holds.

Comments: This climb is a blast; jams and and pockets with a cool finish. Fully bolted; no gear needed. Less slabby than I expected.

Comments: The most fun you will ever have on a single pitch 5.8 sport route: beautiful, giant pockets the whole way.

Comments: Not a big fan of this route; a fall while clipping lower bolts will result in decking. poor feet throughout; that being said, some sweet layback moves.

Comments: Might be the best 5.10- at Iris. fun flake to bomber pockets, one tough move to get on the upper face. Uber-classic.

Comments: Mostly 5.9, but a couple5.10 slabby/thin moves above first bolt. Enjoyable.

Comments: 3 bolts. Fun warm up. If you follow the bolt line straight up from the ground it is definitely 10a. Probably can be made 9+ if you stay right at start and finish.


Location: WY : Grand Teton National Park : Blacktail Butte : Upper Blacktail Butte : Rock Candy Nugget (5.10b)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 26, 2014

Comments: Fantastic warm up. Big holds throughout. 10a if you've climbed it before, but some big holds that are hidden and a mandatory traverse to the second bolt can make it a tricky onsight for the 5.10 leader. Best 5.10 (although limited competition) at BTB.


Location: WY : Grand Teton National Park : Blacktail Butte : Upper Blacktail Butte : Wild at Heart (5.11b)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 26, 2014

Comments: Best 11- at blacktail, but don't tell anyone because its the only one that isn't at all polished. Far more enjoyable than Inconceivable on lower BTB. Sustained technical movement through lower section; sequency crux clipping bolt and getting above ledge. Nice 5.10 moves above ledge to finish. Must do.

Location: WY : Jackson Hole : Rock Springs Buttress : Do It For Doug (5.10)
By: Daniel Nelson When: Aug 20, 2014

Comments: Great route. Fantastic exposure, movement, rock quality. Definitely think at least 10c for the upper pitches; holds/sequence not obvious and very sustained. I wouldn't send anyone less than a comfortable 5.11 leader up this for their first go at it.

Rapping to the anchors above the first pitch is sketchy as mentioned. Required a swing and clipping a draw through a bolt to pull on to finally get me over to the anchor. A block or prussik of some kind is recommended.

Comments: Insanely fun. positive crimpy/slabby easy, but fun start to overhung pump jugs. Crux midway up upper face with small pocket and thin feet. Excellent steep, juggy finish. A must do at the grade. Hit up Red Rider just to the right for one of the best 5.10- at the iris.
