DescriptionComboys Don't Shoot Straight is a technical slab climb with thin, sharp holds and tricky feet. This is a worthwhile climb, or at least it was, but unfortunately someone has seen fit to chop all of the bolts except for the first one. This is particularly mean-spirited, as it lures unsuspecting folks up the speckled slab, where bolts are hard to see. Hopefully this route will be re-bolted, as it is does provide something a bit different for The Wild Iris. It is possible to toprope this from adjacent routes if you don't mind risking a bit of a swing.
Begin with cruxy slab moves up to an intermittent seam feature. Follow this seam up into a scoop up to the pocketed wall above. These pockets are a bit sharper than most at The Iris. There used to be an 11a extension (Pokey) through the groove in the roof above, but this also appears to have been chopped.
