Though the crux and into pocket heaven...

Description 

This route is one of the best 5.10's on the Main Wall. The first bolt is a little ways up there, but the climbing is positive and straight forward. The climb is characterized by big moves on good holds. At mid height you cut left for a few moves before moving back to the anchor.

Protection 

6-7 bolts

Beat me to my description:

The BEST 10d or even the best 10 period at Iris, perfect pocket pulling !! This as good as it get's for a "moderate" and is the "Gold Standard" for the best 5.10 at Iris

These are very big moves if you don't your feet in the right spots. I kept expecting better holds so I wouldn't pull on the best holds available (which are pretty damn good, all things considered). Get on it.

This is a beautiful route with amazing pockets. The crux involves a big move to a huge bucket and occurs about 1/3 of the way up the route. Do this one if you are in the area!
