Comments: What a fantastic crack climb! I didn't place a #2, 1s to .75s to .5s (2-3 of each would really sew it up). You could place something smaller near the midway anchor, but if you're like me you are probably redlining at this point, so maybe best to just gun it!

Seemed a little hard for .11b compared to Indian Creek climbs of similar sizes. On a later TR I did a quasi-lieback through the purple camalot section at the top which made it feel more like solid .11, but straight-in jamming thru it... more >>

Comments: Awesome climbing, lots of sidepulls & oppositional feet, styles not overly common in Tensleep. Almost felt more like granite face climbing except for the smattering of typically great pockets everywhere. 11d/12a? Doesn't matter! Fantastic addition Charlie & Mike.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Leigh Creek : Upper Psychoactive Wall : Gloom (5.11b/c)

Comments: A little bit sharp, but still ranks among best routes of the grade in Tensleep IMO. Rightmost route on the main Psychoactive, pull mini roof to start.

Comments: If I remember right, this route gets sun most of the day, making a cooler fall day an ideal time for an ascent?

Also, anyone know if the raps can be done w/ a single 70m rope?

Comments: After having climbed extensively at both places, any one of the four-star rated climbs at this crag would be a highly travelled, highly chalked classic if it were in Tensleep. Hopefully some more folks will check out the goods!

Comments: Another Mike Snyder classic! A little bit gritty start leads to fantastic holds and moves on the upper white headwall. Didn't have the time (or juice) to hit the neighboring 12s, but they look equally nice.


Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Lake Point : Illigitimus Rotundus : Burl Ives Is Dead (5.12a)

Comments: Another fantastic Lake Point route. Couple of options at the crux for climbers of different inclinations. Potential for decent (safe) airtime on the upper headwall!

Comments: Outstanding climbing the whole way, reachy juggy pockets to challenging bulge moves to techy upper face. So much fun.

Comments: Awesome pitch, steep and poweful crux. I left a biner on the second or third bolt to prevent a big swing into the tree when cleaning. It'll probably get bootied but just in case someone reads this, it's pretty useful on the way down!

Comments: Fantastic climbing. One of the best at the cliff and on par with the best dolomite routes in Wyo (along with most other routes at this cliff!).

Comments: So just to clarify... are we talking OLD #4 camalots (new #5) for the crux pitch or NEW #4 camalots (old #3.5)?

Comments: Let's see, Grade IV standards... North Ridge of the Grand Teton, any route on the Incredible Hulk, Northeast Buttress of Higher Cathedral Rock in Yosemite, East Buttress of El Cap, Pingora's Northeast Face... and Cold Forged Steel!!

Commitment grades do seem meaningless anymore with people commonly climbing grade VI in a day. For people who do care about such things, grade IV does seem a little gratuitous by about two levels. It's a grade II.

Great little adventure if my memory serves ... more >>

Comments: Obviously awesome from the ground. Stacked, bouldery, multiple roof pulls, great holds and well- bolted.

Comments: Hey gordwah.... if you're going to give a route a bomb rating, at least make a comment or two regarding why the route is so awful! Otherwise it looks like you just got your feelings hurt because the route was harder than you though it would be.

For what it's worth, I felt the route was spot-on at 12a, even on par with the grade at other areas (Tensleep, Lander, Natural Bridge, etc...)

Comments: PSA- Though you drive through no entrance stations, Blacktail Butte is still in Grand Teton National Park. Meaning no dogs, on-leash or otherwise. To even have to say this seems ridiculous, considering there are numerous signs that you must walk past indicating that dogs aren't allowed.
