The Zorro Wall from the trail to the Main Wall.


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.

Getting There 

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.

Gaucho 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  WY : Wild Iris : Zorro Area
This is my favorite 5.10 route at Wild Iris. The route consists of big moves between large pockets on an overhanging wall. This pumpy route ends at a small ledge, with a difficult move to clip the anchor. Being tall helps... ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Look carefully for the cairn; the trail can be difficult to spot. It is almost directly across the main road from the dirt road that turns right just above the outhouse. Description to find path in Lander Sport Climbs can be slightly misleading-we met two other groups also looking for Zorro Wall that had missed the path. Please add rocks to the cairn when you turn onto the path to make it easier for others to find!
