Soft Iron


This route is in need of its own independent start. Start by climbing P1 and P2 of Iron Maiden to get to the halfway tree ledge. Belay from the left side of the ledge.

P3: Angle left across a low angle slab to a left angling finger crack in the steeper slab. Follow the crack left and then go straight up getting gear in horizontals. Finish at a ring anchor by a wide crack in the headwall. 120’ 5.8

P4: This pitch has a lot of loose blocks and is not recommended. Climb the wide crack and gain a blocky ledge. Continue straight up with occasional gear to a big ledge. Find a place to pull the final bulge to get to the tree anchor on top. 100’ 5.9
