One of the best 5.11's at the OK. The technical crux is on the slab, but a pumpy finish waits for you above. Get a good rest before the final headwall. There are large buckets on this steep section, but you might get pumped out by clipping all of the closely spaced bolts.


This route is on far left side of the cliff.


~10 bolts

One of the best routes at the Iris of any grade and the best 11b hands down. Get on it! Love the two styles of climbing to be had on TWar.
