The iron cross


This short little route has a bit of a Napoleon complex. The bouldery moves start just off the deck and don't stop until you're at the anchor. Figure out your beta to pull through crimps, side slopers, jugs, and numerous heel-toe cams to reach the jug above the horizontal break. Now, if you have 6 ft of wingspan, you can dyno sideways into an iron cross. If you don't, things are going to get interesting. After latching the next jug, pull one more boulder problem on small crimps and crank a couple jugs to the anchor.

5 rusty bolts to a single bolt anchor. The anchor has a locking biner and I left a fixed draw on the last bolt to back up the anchor.

I am 5'8" with a +1" reach and was able to keep my feet on the wall when I did the lateral move. It is a huge move, but you don't need to be 6' tall to do this one. Intense little route!

If you can't figure out the beta for the bottom boulder problem, keep trying! It doesn't go any harder than V4, but it sure feels hard with the wrong foot sequence. Great route!

Man what a amazing climb! The climb sticks with you from the bottom to the top with perfectly sculpted holds that are just the perfect distance to make a climb!
