Summer Wrap-up: Bolting and Climbing



We've had a busy summer full of equal parts climbing (in Ten Sleep, WY) and work-/ immigration-related travel to Utah and Montana.

Last week we traveled to Montana to visit some friends and when we returned to Ten Sleep - whoops! - the summer was over. Which isn't to say that climbing season is over. Au contraire! After a summer of brutally hot temperatures (upper 90's to lower 100's), this sudden temperature drop is quite welcome.
In any case, we've had to wrap up the summer's activities - bolting projects at our new, high-elevation crag, and climbing projects at the established crags here in Ten Sleep Canyon.

Following are some photos of the last couple weeks' of activity:
