The crux is at the 4th bolt. This is a good route, short and fun. It is a bit hollow behind some of the plates right of the last bolt to the anchors.


Park at the pullout for Friendship 7 (1.3 miles west of the Beige Tube). Walk west to the climb Ironjohn. 15 feet west of Ironjohn is a gully. Hike up 60-70 yards (look for the obvious chains on the left side of the gully).


5 draws for the 5 bolts, anchor with chains at the top.

I enjoyed this climb, fairly good rock. Looks like it got new hardware recently. Mar 5, 2017
Replaced the two non-locking biners that were holding the chains to the bolts with quicklinks, 7/20/14. Jul 20, 2014
