The setting, steepness, and variety of climbing styles on this route put it among the top three 11s at Ten Sleep. A bouldery crux between bolts 3 & 4, leads to another 10 bolts of brilliant climbing. Keep your eyes open for the cool mono pockets and fossils on this route up high.

There's a point on this route where I clipped from a mono, stared directly at a fossil the size of my forearm right at eye level, then reached up and grabbed another mono.
Stellar movement, stellar rock, stellar position. DO IT!
And do July Jihad while you're up there!

Yup, definitely on the short list for best 11s out here! Fantastic climbing with no distinct crux (maybe the monos, but the feet are so good there). Sustained from about bolts 4-9... hang on!
