Like several of the crags in this area, Metropolis has a lower angle 50 foot intro section caped by another 50 feet of steeper bulges. The lower section is home to a disconcerting number of cracks, making Metropolis one of the few "moderate meccas" in Ten Sleep. There are a handful of good 5.9 and 5.10- pitches. The upper section features several more demanding 5.12 to 5.13- 'extensions'. Also, the nearby Daily Planet boulder hosts a half dozen shorter steep, powerful routes.
Metropolis has the distinction of being located midway between two large crags, 'Downtown' and 'Mondo Beyondo', each with its own approach trail.
