This strenuous route follows a right leaning flake system with laybacks and jamming. The feet are poor in this section, so good body tension is required. The crack system deposits you into some face climb above. The crux of the climb is finding go positions to clip the bolts in the flake section.


This climb begins where the main trail meets the cliff line.


6-7 bolts

Great Line. A little spicy clipping some of the early clips off of the poor feet. Real fun laybacking, solid for grade (10c).

A friend of mine (ahem, WBJ) whipped on this and racked his nuts on the rope. I very nearly did the same thing when I fell at the second bolt. Be carful.

This line has a more traditional feel to it, so those used to placing gear shouldn't feel too intimidated by it (if this was a route in Lumpy, it would likely be 9). The bottom is fairly slick at this point, but the flake is pretty featured and provides bomber hands.

This could certainly be lead on gear if one was so inclined (I'm rather surprised that it's bolted actually)

Where do you think we are Scott? Montana??

Pwa are you serious Nick? I feel like (apart from Lander and Ten Sleep), WY has some pretty serious bolting ethics. Not sure how it compares to Montana. I'm just saying, this line would be a fun trad lead, but I understand why it is bolted, considering the near-lack of trad lines anywhere else in the area.

Scott, I'm not serious- my comment was tongue in cheek, more poking fun at Montana ethics than at you.

agreed could be led with gear fairly safely....however this is a sport area so not many people have their rack handy. Super hard for the grade.
