Comments: One of my least favorite 11s at Tensleep... but still really good!

Comments: Really fun, but not as good as Crazy Wynona or Slightly Toasted Cracker IMO. Maybe it's just because it doesn't have as much chalk on it :). Pretty hard move @ second bolt, maybe a hold broke? Felt significantly harder than anything on both of the aforementioned routes (both rated harder).

Comments: Continuously steep. Beautiful pocket pulling, great roof pull, and some airy stemming up high. One of my favorite 11s in Tensleep.

Comments: This section of wall made me laugh. You can finish this climb after four bolts about 30' up (really?), or continue to another two bolt anchor 20' higher or ANOTHER two bolt anchor 20' after that! Two stars if you go to the top of the flake (and why wouldn't you?).

Comments: Really fun wraparound pockets. Good warmup. Crank a boulder problem then romp up easy terrain.

Comments: Outstanding, fantastic! One of my favorites in the Canyon. Definitely not 12a though (maybe in the Red).

Comments: Fantastic, incredible moves. Must do.
I actually thought the crux was the opening moves. Maybe I didn't catch the right nubbins, but I found it damn hard, much harder than any of the moves in the overhanging terrain above.

Comments: Super fun pitch on its own, and it also serves as the main approach for Kabooki Direct, a fantastic mixed climb.

Comments: You can get away climbing there (especially s facing stuff like the durrance, which is in the sun much of the day) pretty early and late in the season, including choice winter days.

Comments: Nice eye Marc! That would be Sunset Dome, though there was a progression towards Gnome Dome shortly after the sunset!

Comments: That would be a gnarly freesolo Bowman! Was it onsight? Those moves over the roof felt a bit awkward!

Comments: Great climbing with a couple different tricky spots. Compliments the other two 11s nicely.

Comments: Honestly felt this to be the hardest of the three .11s in this spot. Excellent climbing!

Comments: This area should be on the short list for any regional climbers. I climbed on the Trailside Wall yesterday for the first time in 8 years and had an absolute blast. Bowman did a great job bolting, cleaning, and picking choice lines.

Comments: Outstanding climbing. Certainly on par with any Tensleep route I've climbed, as are the 3 routes to its right. The blessing & curse is that it doesn't get as much traffic as Tensleep and thus some of the pockets and edges can accumulate some dust/other detritus...
Still, this wall kicks ass.

Comments: After climbing this thing a couple of times, one has to wonder how "enhanced" those super duper deep monos are. I'd choose to feign ignorance, because this thing has some outstanding climbing!

Comments: Yep, both photos have Rabbit Rock in the background (location of Redtail and Sudden Pleasure, the obvious black streak in the background of the "disputed" photo). This photo is more cropped and shot w/ a tele lens... perhaps that's throwing you off? Not that this matters at all... just procrastinating before a stats exam. Glad you got to climb the route... super fun.
