News Link: Ten Sleep Canyon in northern Wyoming is a popular destination for 5.9 to 5.13 routes on solid dolomite and limestone, but the 2009 edition of the guidebook did not list a single 5.14 climb. Time for a new guidebook: This summer, James Litz established at least seven 5.14 routes, including General Litzenheimer (5.14c/d) and Master of the Universe (5.14d).
