The fun upper headwall of Hip Boot Romance.
Hip Boot Romance climbs a nice slab of jugs after a steep, difficult start. This line is a bit unusual for The Iris, with more crimping than pocket pulling, making it a nice change of pace. This is probably not the best choice for a warmup, featuring a brief, in-your-face boulder problem to a trivial finish.
Good holds lead past the undercut start and onto the face. Shouldery, devious moves snake back & forth across the bolt line. The pump builds until a sinker jug rail is reached. From here, easier moves lead to the anchor.
Immediately right of "Limestone Cowboy" on the Wild Horses Wall. This is also the 2nd bolted route right of an overhanging, left-leaning dihedral bolted with gray Fixe hangers.
Bolts, 2 Bolt Anchor. Stick clip is highly recommened for the first bolt.
