Superb route up the steep headwall left of the "Sheep Reaction" arete. Tiptoe up easy but crumbly terrain to reach a very high first bolt. Then get psyched for great climbing using arm-eating jugs and positive pockets, culminating until a distinct crux pulling onto the upper face on slightly thinner holds.

Epic route, by far one of my favorite buttresses at Ten Sleep after 30+ days climbing there. Some of the holds definitely are a little sandy but the quality of the climbing is superb. More like 14 bolts. The crux is an awesome series of smaller holds with good movement. Go do Where the Sidewalk Ends, Sheep Reaction, and If Dreams Were Thunder for an Epic day!

Solid climb for the grade. Yes, a little dirty, but the climbing holds and movement are totally worth it. FYI first bolt is ~25-30 ft. off the deck, but it's 5.6 climbing.
