Description

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 2 finger pocket. I really can't overstress how amazing (and miniscule) the crux 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

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

6 bolts to rings
