DescriptionOne of the best sections of climbing at Wild Iris.
This crag is taller than many of the Wild Iris walls, and generally splits into two tiers. The lower tier is vertical to slightly overhanging, and is roughly 60 to 70 feet tall. Then the second tier is a big steep bulge that extends another 20 feet or so above.
Routes have been put in here in a generally smart way, with anchors at the top of the first tier, and then route extensions to the top of the second tier. So there are plenty of easier options that go 5.10 or 5.11 up to the first anchors and then offer 5.12 and 5.13 extensions to the top.
A few classics include Cowboy Poetry (11b to the first anchor or 12b to the second), Take your Hat Off (10b), and its hard extension Boy (13a).
Gets lots and lots of sun, pretty much all day.
