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 it's right side should have a trail up to the rock face behind it up a hill. The trail gets steep up by the face and has a few rail road ties for retention walls. you will approach the routes right to left.

EDIT: There may be multiple trails on either side of the Razorblade Boulder. I believe the original trail was on the right. Which ever way you do go, try to stay on an established trail.

The trail is actually on the left side of the boulder as you face it.
