This great route is another pocket pulling classic in Wild Iris. The crux is a big move off of small pad pockets to a big sinker as you pass the second bolt. The difficulties are over once the sinker is in hand and great pockets lead to the anchors.


This route is the leftmost route on the Five Ten wall and is on a panel by itself. The climb is just right of Popo Agie Pocket Pool on the Hot Tamale wall. Osita starts immediately right of a large dead tree.

Meh. One hard move to easier climbing above. The single crux move is far harder than anything else on the climb, thus it felt very discontinuous at the grade. If you can pull the move on this one, you might as well go over and get on Hot Tamale which doesn't have any moves harder than the crux of Osita, but is more sustained (and way better). Jun 29, 2010
