Starts left of Dead Dog Face. Begin in middle of face. Where the two bolt lines split angle left and basically go straight up the prow (the left side of the arete is 'off'). Sort of a one-move route but hey it's Barn Bluff and they are all pretty short.

It is called "Pietro Loves Iris" in honor of Mike Endrizzi's Italian friend and his girlfriend.


Left of Dead Dog Face on East End. Left route on the prow.

This route confused me. On the guidebook I have it states that the right side was a 10.b and the left side was a 9. The rating here seems more accurate. Going to the right was definitely harder than a 10.b but the left was honestly a 5.10a but 5.10b isn't a far reach I suppose.
