Saying a Wild Iris route is bouldery is like saying the same thing twice, like being redundant.

This is a really excellent route, despite its diminutive stature, that I think is noticeably better than Cow Reggae, though most guidebook authors seem to disagree. This is pretty long & sustained at the grade for a Wild Iris route. Most of the 5.13s up here have less than four hard moves. While the crux itself is probably only ~5 really hard moves, there are plenty of desparate opportunities above to blow the redpoint. There is one move in particular, right at the lip, that would make most non-locals doubt the 12c grade of Babalouie.

Despite the comfortizing, this guy will make you bleed, so plenty of tape is advised.
