DescriptionNine Horse Johnson is an excellent new addition to the Rode Hard Wall, climbing the enormous roof via acrobatic footwork. Its surprising that such an excellent line sat neglected for more than 15 years between two legendary climbs. In any case, this is an excellent moderate, featuring likely the steepest 5.11 climbing at The Wild Iris.
Begin with easy moves up a coral-covered flake. Surmount the flake, then launch onto the beautiful white panel. Sequential, long reaches between sinker two-finger pockets ascend the panel to a so-so shake below the roof. Head left, then out the roof on enormous jugs to the lip. Grope for hard-to see pockets above the lip as the pump builds. An unlikely foothold provides passage when things get desperate.
