Do the tricky Step right this Way start then go left. As soon as you hit the black streak it gets difficult with multiple 5.12 cruxes and some 5.11 edge crimping for good measure at the top. Excellent movement with several options for each hard section, make this route tough to onsight. As cliche as it may sound, the hardest route at the crag is usually the best. No different here.
The route between Step Right This Way and Circus In The Wind. Same start as Step Right This Way, but go left after the second clip.

Finally ticked this one. Matts retarded sandbag grade of 5.12a should be ignored entirely. This route is 5.12d and is on par with many other 12+ routes in Tensleep as far as quality and difficulty goes.
Also an easy one to work, as you can climb Circus In The Wind 11b, and swing over to the right to place draws and inspect the route or set up a toprope.

Might have felt stiff as this was the last route I got on after a five day trip, but goddamn lovely movement - fun set up into a very cruxy middle section, and then a good rest before a casual finish.
