Ringtail Cat (Bassariscus astutus) at the IRS Wall...
Up and right from the Dairy Queen Wall
is this nicely featured wall with a good assortment of mostly crack routes and the odd face climb. Highlights here include Tax Man
(5.10a) and Alf's Arete
(5.11a). Morning sun and afternoon shade.
Approach as for the Dairy Queen Wall
but head up and right through boulders following a worn path to the base of the wall. Plan on a 15-25 minute approach from the car.
