Description

Buckskin Billy is another great moderate at the Wild Iris, and makes for a pretty good warmup on the Rode Hard Wall. Unfortunately some of the most difficult moves come right off the deck, which can be a bit of a shock straight out of the sleeping bag.

Begin on the far right end of the low angled wall. Overcome a steep bulge with good pockets & poor feet, to gain the easy slab above. Cruise up the simple slab to a steepening headwall. An engaging sequence of fun pocket moves leads to the top of the headwall.

Location

The furthest right of 3 bolted routes on a slabby wall immediately right of the main Rode Hard Wall.

Protection

Bolts, 2 BA.

This route s in your face right off the ground. But, once you have surmounted the opening bulge, it eases up to no harder than 8 or 9. I thought this route was kind of bland (as well as the 10c to the right) - some fun pockets but not particularly interesting movement. Sep 6, 2011
