Cameron Horst on Galactic Emperor (5.14a)


Ten Sleep, Wyoming, is home to some of the finest limestone sport climbing in America, with thin, gently overhanging, sustained face climbs featuring micro-crimps and one-finger pockets. Galactic Emperor is the most popular 5.14a project at Ten Sleep with two V8/V9 boulder problems down low followed by a long anchor run of 5.13a climbing. Cameron (age 11) sent this on his fourth attempt over two days—it was the second of Cameron's three 5.14a sends in summer 2012.
