  • There are plenty of spots to set up camp near canyon

Ten Sleep Canyon is one of the best places to climb in the US. Located in North Central Wyoming, it is home to almost nobody other than the wild life. The closest town is Ten Sleep, population of about 210 people. The town has everything you might need: a coffee shop with Wifi and a great Bar with awesome food.

The Canyon itself is all sport climbing with hundreds of routes and potential for hundreds more. Most of the climbing is on one side of the canyon, leaving potential for plenty of other routes all over. The routes are long and not very steep in most areas. The quality of rock is some of the best.

Most people camp on the old dirt road; there are spots to camp all along it. Please practice leave no trace ethics and have fun getting pumped out of your mind.

I am a professional photographer/Film-maker based out of the beautiful state of Utah. I have always loved being able to create. From luxury furniture to adventure films. Creation is a huge passion of mine as well as the outdoors. Anytime I can't mix those two together, I am thrilled! You can find my work at and in social media @threepeakfilms
