Description 

Really nice route on great stone, my only complaint is that it should be twice as long!

Start on easy ground, gets 5.10ish towards the middle, and finishes with a thin cranker crux in the dihedral up high.

Probably only a couple of genuine 5.11 moves on this, but the position and high stone quality certainly qualify it for 3 stars.


Location 

The first route encountered when approaching, on the far right side of the wall.


Protection 

5 or 6 bolts to anchors at 45 feet

the water was so high that the beginning of this was under water when we went to do it. no matter though... traversed in and had a blast at the crux. great line!

Pretty sure the FA for this one belongs to Kevin, the manager at Mtn Sports in Casper.
He is easily one of the best people to talk to(and easy to find at work) about climbing in the area
