Ten Sleep

Until three or four years ago, you may have never heard about Ten Sleep. This area has undergone a huge growth spurt, and it shows in the growing number of guidebooks that continue to spawn. It’s popularity is understandable because of the limestone, care taken to upkeep hardware, the liberal bolting, loaded cliffs of climbing at all grades and the sense of the area being a climber’s destination. The Dolomite Limestone offers stellar pockets, sharp crimps and the general feeling that you are climbing in a gym.

Ten Sleep Rock Climbing
Ten Sleep is gaining popularity among climbers, emerging as one of the best limestone areas in Wyoming

If you climb 5.10 fairly consistently in the gym, you will have no problems finding routes here. Most areas have an abundance of routes from 5.10 and beyond. Areas such as Shinto and Big Kahuna Pillar contain a great number of routes at the 5.10 grade. For 5.11, head over to almost any area. Just to name a few, Back Forty, Shinto, and Circus Wall. If you’re interested in 5.12 and on, you can look at areas like Shinto and Ark offer abundant 5.12 routes and Grasshopper harbors a few 5.13’s.

About the author
In Memory: AMGA Certified Rock Guide and 57hours Ambassador

On September 1, 2022, we learned of the passing of Cody Bradford, a friend, an inspiration, an educator and community member. During his time as a guide, he made an indelible impact on the industry and those around him, with an unceasing smile and positivity and the way he welcomed others into the outdoors through teaching (#TechTipTuesday), humor and compassion. We first met Cody five years ago and it was his love for people, enthusiasm for guiding, and determination to become a fully certified mountain guide that impressed us and motivated us to build this company. Cody began his guiding career with the North Carolina Outward Bound School in 2012 and rapidly tackled challenge after challenge to gain his AMGA Rock Guide Certification in April 2018. We were lucky to have worked with Cody and he will forever be a part of the soul of 57hours. He will be deeply missed and remembered by the 57hours team.

In memory of Cody Bradford
