Behind The Founding Of The Bighorn Climber’s Coalition

Nice piece on DPM about an important step being taken to form a climber’s coalition for the Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming which are home to the increasingly popular Ten Sleep Canyon.  Once an area you just heard rumors about1, Ten Sleep has become one of the most popular summer climbing destinations in the U.S. and non-climbing land managers have started to take notice.  Forming a group to represent climber’s interest in the region is a great step.

This is also a good time to give props to DPM editor Mikey Williams who, unlike yours truly, is actually a pretty good climber in his own right.  Most recently he climbed Masters of the Universe, a 5.14c in Ten Sleep.  Nice work!

Wyoming’s Potential

Mike Williams with a great post about one of the many new routes he bolted in Wyoming this summer:

For a century, Steamboat the bucking horse has symbolized the spirit of the state. Wild and still untamed, it’s possible to step off of any road in Wyoming and find yourself in immediate wilderness. The countryside in the Bighorns will never be reigned in. They’re too big, too wild, and hold too many secrets.
