Irie Heights Rock Climbing
Michael Madsen on Yeti Lunge trying new sequence.
Irie Heights is a nice cluster of boulders that often get overlooked. It's name comes from the namesake boulder the Irie Heights boulder. This block has good problems like Virgin Martini and Fleshwound. North Nostril Cave has great pumpy roof problems. It also holds possible ONE of the hardest dyno problems in the Midwest Trogdor V9. Also, this area includes The Calm Gulley with ONE of Baldys hardest The Perfect Storm which is also one of the only V11s at Baldy. Scary Trees, Amish Power, Groovy, Jaba, and mission Impossible are all in this area.
Follow single track trail north towards the base of Baldy. Just Pass the CandyLands is Irie Heights.
