Skip Guerin in the early 80's

Description 

Climb the obvious rail from left to right. Easy moves provide encouragement, until the rail gets smaller near the end. Good incuts and determination help gain the sloper out on the right lip. Match on this and swing your right foot high and complete a classic.

Location 

South face of the 'Iron Man Boulder'

Protection 

pads (optional)

Hey everybody, line up for the Ironman! As a note of trivia, the first ascensionist, Tony Puppo, considered calling it "Desert Peach" due to the large flowering plant that once grew beneath it.

Really really fun! Compared to a lot of other Buttermilk "classics" (Birthday Direct,anything on the Green Wall), this is far less slimy. Get on it!

Low to the ground, fun moves, approachable, flat landing, gorgeous rock, lovely looking.... you can see why this might be the most photographed problem on the planet.

There are two key small footholds for the crux. Oh... and don't throw a right heel hook until AFTER you have matched the jug.

A real classic for the Bishop area. My advice is hit it early if you are there in the middle of the season, or you will see some huge crowds and have to wait your turn.

Felt real soft for V4...more like V2-3. Maybe I'm just not use to the juggy holds...Come try V4 at Joshua Tree or Mt. Woodson.

Dave,

I have never heard anyone besides you say The Buttermilks are softer than J-Tree. JBMFP (V5) at J-Tree feels easier than Iron Man. White Rasta (V3) is only hyped because its highball. Likewise Flight attendent (V4 or V7 sit), The Turtle (V7), Caveman (V6), etc., all felt easier than Iron Man imho...
