Description 

Mild Iowa has three 5.8 sport climbs, great for the begining leader! The climbs get harder as you go from left to right, although beginners may disagree. The far right is hardest. The far left is steepest. The middle route is probably in between making it seem easiest. After a rain these are usually wet and the pockets remain wet and mud filled for a few days even if the face appears dry.

Getting There 

From the main trail, walk to the Razorblade Boulder. When facing the boulder take the path on the left side. The trail gets steep up by the face and has a fallen tree trunk to climb over as approach the climbing routes.

There were multiple trails on either side of the Razorblade Boulder. The trail on the right side is being covered over do discourage future use as it is not needed.
