Urs having fun on the classic Zorro 5.11d.


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.


Follows the black streak in the center of the main wall


9 bolts

Awesome climb. Like the description says, no moves are much harder than 11a/b, but they just keep coming one after another. Well placed bolts, too. I'd definitely give this one a repeat when I'm back.
