Description 

Inverted Iron Cross is perhaps a harder variation to Agitation that climbs straight up through both roofs without moving over to the low angle hand crack of “Bloody Bucket”. Back in the mid 90’s I found an unconventional way to pull through the first roof crux and reach the second roof by getting into the gymnastic position called the “inverted iron cross”. Not sure how to rate this climb plus it might be different if someone figures out a more conventional approach.

Long top systems needed, good trees are about 50' back.
