The Erratic is home to a small number of excellent...

Description 

This cool mostly shady crag hides way out on the back side of the Iris. You'll generally have the place to yourself and find a small number of classic lines from 5.10 to 5.14. Wotai (10d), Medicine Man (11c), When I was a Young Girl.. (13a), and Throwin' the Houlihan (14a) are the must do if you can lines out here.


Getting There 

Walk towards the main iris, staying left and high at all junctions until you pass the Main Wall on the left. Or, approach from the main wall by hiking up the wall and joining the trail past the Rising from the Plains section. Continue on the faint trail until you start to see the mostly sunny cliffs of Gun Street and Aspen Glade in the distance, look for a faint trail off to the right (becomes most distinct shortly) heading into the pine forest with not much rock immediately visible. Soon the Erratic will show its impressive white clean face with the 14 routes on the first steep section. Mono pocket pulls anyone?

Featured Route For The Erratic
Wotai starts up the curving crack, then moves right, onto the clean white face, finishing over the small capping roof.

Wotai 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  WY : Wild Iris : The Erratic
Stellar Wild Iris line. Climbs up an easy left leaning crack before entering into the business on the face above. Doesn't let off much from here to the anchors. Great climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
