Comments: This a trad climb masquerading as a sport climb. Don't be put off by the single star rating. If you are comfortable with trad climbing style, you will find this to be a fun climb well worth doing (if only to give you fingers a rest from pulling on sharp pockets). I found it to be easier than other moderates at Iris. Beware of loose rock up high in the crack on the left.

Comments: This is a great route, that doesn't seem to get as much spray as J-crack and Femp. P1 has perfect finger locks and high friction for your feet. It was one of my first 5.9 leads and protects really well. It seems like the crack always tends to have about 2 pieces of fixed gear in it. A hint for P2 would be to think about your hand placements before slotting in gear. My partner made it much more difficult for himself than it needed to be by filling up his jams. Overall, every pitch is great ... more >>

Comments: Personally, I felt like going thru the roof at the 3" crack was very hard. It felt more like solid 10a to me. For someone shorter, weaker, and having less skill than others, such as myself, it required a a lot of lock off strength. Once you get the left hand "jug" and can get your feet up a little higher it eases up a little, but I found it to be pretty tough to move off of the rail. If this grade is near your limit, prepare to really have to power thru it. A #3 Camalot protects it we... more >>

Comments: This was my first Eldo 5.9 lead and I didn't think it was as hard as others I have followed or lead since then in the canyon. I'm 5'6" and this climb was definitely more than a one move wonder. I'd agree with 3 or 4 moves that by the end of them you could be looking at an unpleasant ride if you fell before getting back into the crack. In hindsight, I'd advise folks to be pretty comfortable at 8+ before leading this. Falling from the face mid-crux would not be good. Place gear as high as you... more >>

Comments: Did this route about a week ago and P1 had running water in it. The route is very lichen covered and can be really slippery in places when the lichen meet the water. We ran the rope out for nearly the full 60m for the 1st two pitches. P2 (as we did it) went up relatively tame slab terrain but lacked good pro. The leader needs to be comfortable with long runouts on 5.7 terrain. The upper portion of this pitch got a little steeper and had more protection, but was also laced with loose flakes ... more >>

Comments: I thought the crux of this climb was actually just a few feet off the deck and only lasted about 2 moves. I also had some questionable gear going into these moves in a flaring finger crack. The squeeze chimney was miserable - I wouldn't call it 5.6 even if it were at Vedauwoo. If you are carrying your approach shoes or a pack you'll definitely want to hang them below you on runner. Aside from the low crux on the 1st pitch, I thought the route had excellent placements all the way up. We didn... more >>

Comments: After pulling over the flake, there is a very large jug (hard to describe but you'll know is when you see it). Towards the bottom of this jug hold there appears to be some friable rock. Looked like it could break pretty easy if one were to lay back off of it. Just a heads up....

Fun route, too short, but might be a good lead for those transitioning from 5.8s to 5.9 in Eldo since it protects so well.
