DescriptionCrazy Horst is a short cruxy climb on nice gray stone that is a bit uncharacteristic of The Wild Iris. The dark rock is sharper than most, and a bit dirty, perhaps due to moisture. This route was once given an "R" rating, but it has recently been retro-bolted.
Thin moves lead up the short slab to a stance under the bulge on tan, prickly rock. Start up the bulge with a big jug, then make long reaches between mediocre pockets. Once over the bulge a few more long pumpy reaches lead to easier terrain on the slab.
