Description

Crazy 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.

Location

Immediately right of "Pocket Derringer" on the vertical right end of Rising From the Plains.

Protection

Bolts to 2 Bolt Anchor.
