I'm taking a short road trip with my family up to lander, and we will probably spend a day sport climbing. I've been to wild Iris before, but I didn't really seek out super easy climbs, so I'm not sure where the best areas are for some super chill stuff 5.8 and under. My brother has climbed outdoors with me a handful of times, and my father has never climbed before. I'll be leading everything to setup top ropes for them. In going next week, so I assume sinks canyon is going to be too toasty. I've used the route finder, so I have a basic idea of some areas, but i would like some suggestions from people that climb there with new people often.

The right side of the OK Corral has a good concentration of short moderates close together.
