|Iron Man Boulder
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.

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.
