Zorro is a beautiful crag set apart from the other climbing areas at Wild Iris. The western exposure offers plenty of morning shade. The views across the valley to the main crags and out to the Wind River Mountains are simply stunning. There are a number of good climbs here for 5.10-5.12 climbers. Highly recommended.
Just up from the outhouse towards the quarry (left turn heading uphill) you can spot a trail heading left off the road. It is usually cairned and is about 50 feet above the outhouse. Follow this trail for ten minutes to the crag.

Zorro 5.11d WY : Wild Iris : Zorro Area
This is one of the best 5.11 routes at Wild Iris. There are no moves harder than 5.11a/b, but the route is very continuous. Zorro follows a black streak to the left of Gaucho 5.10d. The route climbs between well spaced pockets that get larger as you climb. The route ends with a fun crack system to a 3 bolt anchor. Some of the moves may be height dependent.The first clip is difficult to clip from the left. I always climb up from the right clip it, and then down climb to start the route. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
