Less visited than the front side, Gun Street offers great stone and some of the longer hard lines at the Iris. The classic routes tend to be harder (5.11+ and up) and thus, Gun Street tends to attract less people. The harder routes here are amongst the best at the Iris.
There are two approaches to the backside. Option one is to park at the standard Iris parking lot and hike on the main trail past the Main Wall. Once you have past Rising From the Plains, you will eventually reach a trail crossing. Turning right leads to the Erratic and Remuda areas. Turning left leads over the top of the ridge to the backside parking area. Continue straight ahead for Gun Street and the Aspen Glades wall. After the trail crossing, watch for a faint trail (marked by double cairns) leading left towards the center of the Gun Street Wall.

Falling while going for the anchors (crux) leads to a great, bowel churning free air fall. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
