The Almighty

Jonathan Siegrist writes about his experience repeating a mixed route called The Almight(5.14a) in Teton Canyon, WY that was first done by local Ty Mack in 2011:

This is one of my favorite ascents to date – I feel that it is my hardest trad lead and it was a really cool process to get there. Ty suggested .14a for The Almighty and I think personally I would suggest .14b for the short person method through the lower and upper cruxes. Because of size we really did climb the route entirely different. Ty’s effort here isreally sick, and I want to make a point to congratulate him again for his efforts opening The Almighty — there really is nothing else like it!

It’s always cool to read these stories of off the radar routes established by off the radar bone crushers.
