Location: WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Pooh Corner : Tiger Tries Ten Sleep (5.10a)

Comments: Is this the route slightly downhill that start's above a boulder? If so this is the one with a high first bolt.

Comments: I think this is the third route from right to left on the wall after the two 5.6 routes that are separated by a tree? Second clip is a bit sketchy in hotter temps…sweaty hands & slippery feet and not so good a rest/jug to clip from. Felt more like a 10c/d to me, though it was our first route in the canyon.

Comments: Just left of the other two short moderates Fake Snake 5.7 and Douggie & Jimmy's Excellent Adventure 5.8. Fun stemming and palm-pressing ramble when your fingertips are seared like a Wyoming sirloin. For the 11c finish trend left and up on thin power moves...

Comments: Great day in the high alpine, good workout to get to, sun, views and no one else around. A fun tower, easily done in one pitch (bring extra slings and mid-size pieces). Belayed off the cable w/ a backup piece. Worthy outing combined with a few other solid lines in the area.

Comments: Slightly harder than Ionic Column, perhaps because you get tired and it's longer after slabbing out on 1st pitch..

Comments: Warm up the early season "trad head" on this fun run, good gear and good moves on P2.

Comments: Put the tight sport shoes on, and bring on the screeching toe pain while standing on a wafer edge! Fun, short, freak out fest for budding slaboneers. At 6'3", I could slap out on that arete and bump up for the finish--cool route, slightly easier than Lost in Time.

Comments: Great line to clean up or tune up crack skills for a moderate trad leader. A bit of cleaning on the last short pitch could make for a fun multi-pitch romp.

Comments: Nice, short warm-up to get your "trad head on"...if only it were longer, it'd be great. Could be a short second pitch worth checking out above. Search around for an undercling left, and get the overhead!

Comments: Cool and "heady" route. Sure didn't seem 10b! A lot of harder rated St. Vrain slab routes seem a lot easier, though I suppose it's only two moves (10c/d?). Couldn't reach the bolt from a good feet rest, had to step up/mantle on small somewhat sketchy feet. Barely get established, clip then move quickly on some really small crimps, slap a sloper, and reach quickly for a good hold higher up…fun stuff.

Comments: To be clear, Planetary Pull is the handcrack to the right of Hollow Man…look for a two bolt anchor above the mossy slab/corner…head right to the top of Hand-Crack-Arete…Hollow Man goes up left to a bolted slab....

Comments: Fun easy roof, but then definitely thin, finger crack slaboneering…felt harder than 5.7 after fiddling all those small wires then launching the move to the bolt. Felt dicey as hell for 5.7 as was the traverse over to next crack which still has some dirt in it above. Felt like a lot of bolts at this crag were put in poor/awkward places above where better stances exist.

Comments: If there's a couple of cars (i.e. climbing parties heading that way), you might wanna keep a head's up if any party is climbing Birdbrain as it's increasingly popular to rap The Ribbon afterwards.

Comments: Bouldered the two short flows at Vail's Golf Club (19th or 9th Hole falls etc.) today. The winter that wouldn't end...ice climbing in May for the sheer novelty of it. Fun quick hit solo/bouldering spot easy approach through the trees off the road that passes the golf club.

Comments: Fun solo "ice ramble," perhaps a good lead for a beginning ice leader. Don't know if this is the same line, but for the South-facing long gully just past Silverplume Falls (2nd gully high up heading west on I-70), the easiest approach is to take the Frontage road heading west out of Silverplume (parallel to I-70). About 2 miles up, take a right turn where a bridge goes over I-70, park at the end on the left-facing a hiking trail. Avoid parking near the private driveway on the right. Start hiking... more >>
