Steve Brown on the lower portion of Irresistible. ...


Starts on Delirious but branches right after a couple of bolts, then up.


Same as Delirious

In my humble opinion best line on the wall. Full value route. cruxy right off the bat, then harder crux at the top just before the chains. Make sure to use the big ledge for rest. you will need it at the top.

Is this the one that has it's own set of anchors to the right of Delirious, or is this the one that continues right all the way over to the anchors on the Breeze?

In the McMillen guide, the one that goes all the way over to the Breeze anchors is 12b and called "Simply Irresistible," while the one that goes to its own anchors right of Delirious is 12c and is called "Irresistible."

Hoping to get on one of the two in a few days...

Ian... it has its own set of anchors. It's pretty straightforward...start on Delirious, drift right a bit, then go straight up to ledge. From ledge it goes slightly left to a weird little crux just before anchor.

Tyler's ratings are approximate at best. I think he's even worse at rating than I am.
