DescriptionCow Reggae is a short, technical route on some of the best stone The Wild Iris has to offer. Though barely 25 feet long, this route is very sustained, with multiple difficult moves, and an intricate crux just below the anchor.
Begin high up on the ramp, with a sinker 2 finger pocket for the right hand and an odd shaped four-finger thing for the left. Lunge up to the obvious huge jug, and move left along the break. Good holds lead to a sinker sidepull mono (right hand). The tweakiest move on this route is a long cross off of this mono, but once you figure out the feet its not too bad. The crux boulder problem begins just above with burly, tricky, insecure moves between two finger pockets & shallow dishes. Work up & left to a nice mailslot and a good shake. One more tricky sting in the tail leads to a great jug below the anchor.
