Rock Climbing Guidebooks and Finding WiFi

Guidebooks –
Ten Sleep Canyon Climbing – Written by Louie Anderson (available by mail and in person at the Rock Ranch)
Ten Sleep Online Guidebook – Written by Mike Snyder (available on Rakkup)

WiFi –
While there is Fiber Optic WiFi on the property the signal is generally only useful for internet searches, social media, and emailing. If you are not camping at the Rock Ranch feel free to make a Day Use contribution to one of the blue boxes for the use of the facilities (water, restrooms, WiFi). The WiFi is an amenity available in specific areas of the property (the social area, and the general cabin area). The Rock Ranch cannot guarantee the quality of signal, and that there will be no disruptions in service as the property is in a forest. If guaranteed high quality and undisrupted services is a requirement for your needs then consider using the free public services of the Ten Sleep or Worland Library for your specifics needs (they do accept donations), bringing a satellite if you own one, or booking your stay in town with another rental. In town Dirty Sally’s, Ten Sleep Brewery, Saloon, Sleepy Coyote, and Daily Bread have WiFi as well.
If you use a local business’ WiFi for work related activities consider being a patron. We also suggest you park further away from the front of the establishment, so as to offer regular customers and those with disabilities ease of parking. Thank you for supporting our town and being a good visitor ambassador.

Local Resources

Parking – In the canyon park at designated pullouts only, head in, NOT parallel. In town be mindful of business entrances, and when possible leave the closest spots accessible for the mobility challenged.
Trash Disposal – Several dumpsters are available at the Rock Ranch and the Ten Sleep Brewery allows public waste. Regular sized bags only. Never use a private trash can in town or business dumpster that does not allow public waste. Do not leave large items, like tents, canopies, or chairs. When all else fails, pack it home or visit the Ten Sleep Solid Waste Transfer Station.
Restrooms – Toilets are available at the Rock Ranch. Portable toilets are available on Old Road 16 (USFS 18) during the months of July through September. They are funded by the local Bighorn Climbers’ Coalition (follow the link if you’d like to contribute to the annual installment and increase of toilets). Pack out human solid waste from the National Forest lands by using Leave No Trace methods.
Showers – Paid showers are available at the Rock Ranch, Ten Sleep Brewery, and Ten Sleep RV Park. Never shower in the town Splash Pad, or the town park public restrooms. Avoid bathing or washing anything in the Ten Sleep Creek, even with environmentally safe products.

Respect established trails and road closures, especially early and late in the climbing season and anytime heavy precipitation falls. If roads are too muddy/snowy you can damage them and cause closures. You may also get stuck in the clay, without cell service or support.
Old Road 16 opens mid June to mid November for vehicles. High Park Road (USFS 429 to Crag 6) is not recommended after heavy rainfall and may be closed by the Forest Service.
Be mindful of locals and other visiting outdoor users. Liberty park in town is accessible to the public, as well as the local library. Consider the families and folks visiting alongside you. When possible give back to the local resources you use by being a patron of the town’s businesses.
