I don't see a route entered for the Iron Cross Sit Start. Is this an official, recognized problem? And, what is it rated? I've seen/heard V7 or V6... Thanks, Frank

Frank,

Just saw your comment. in the listed routes there is "Dream on" which starts on the far right side of the boulder and links into Iron Cross via a low roof and goes as a "9" (the traverse is simply tiring, the crux is the low roof).

The sit start to iron cross is unlisted but definitely a thing and starts by the tree on the obvious juggy flake with the first move being a left hand finger lock. It felt like a 7 or an 8 to me (and I've heard the same grades tossed around by several other people)

This is a great bouldering area.

The large face with "Beginner's Delight" is a huge wall with lots of great moderate options, and it;s a pretty high top-out to boot.
