Description [Suggest Change]

Begin under the black streak, as for Tres Amigos, doing a big move to reach the arcing seam. Traverse left, good holds in the seam give way to a boulder problem as the wall becomes vertical and the traversing ends. After increasingly technical moves, a difficult clip, and one of  the most perfect crimps at wild iris, the crux ends at a good 3 finger pocket. I really can't overstress how amazing (and miniscule) this crimp is. You'll know it when you get to it. Probably a 10 move crux. The last two bolts are fun big-hold territory.

Has more sustained crimping than your average Wild Iris route. Only one mono, and a sequence can easily be devised that avoids it.

Location [Suggest Change]

Right side of the vert Chaps wall, between the Hickock bulge and the Rodeo wave. Shares the first bolt with Tres Amigos, then arcs left.

Protection [Suggest Change]

6 bolts to rings
