Home Alone is a complex of south, east, and north-facing walls and alcoves low in Ten Sleep Canyon. On 90 degree days when other formations are baking in the sun, the north and east-facing climbs (a .12+/13 project, two .12s, two .11s, several .10s, a 9, and an 8) offer a welcome respite from the heat.

Getting There 

Park at the first pullout up-canyon from town and cross the highway to the prominent Father Figure pillar (route 18 in Huey's guidebook). Walk east up the shoulder for 100', then follow a trail to a narrow cave (routes 20-22). Continue past the cave to a large, right-facing corner (routes 23-26), then scramble over two boulders to a U-shaped amphitheater (routes 27-32). Three more south-facing routes (33-35) are located on a wall uphill fom the amphitheater. Routes 18-32 are within 10'-150' of the highway.

Limestoned 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  WY : Ten Sleep Canyon : Home Alone
Climb past two bolts to the right of the big crack at the back of the right-facing corner. Step left across the crack to a ledge, clip the third bolt, and climb a flake on an unrelentingly vertical wall. Diagonal left to a good pocket, traverse back right, and do a burly pull-up from a sloping 1" wide edge to a good hold (crux). Continue up the face to a two shut, two bolt anchor. A "Wyoming .10d."...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
