Jon going for it


One of the more popular climbs on Wild Iowa Wall, steep pocket pulling!


5th route from the left. From Gotz Crack second route to the right. Look for a good sized jug that has been epoxied back on.


3 bolts to rap hangers (the left hanger is a spinner)

You can do this route static, which makes it easier for short people.

FYI: the giant epoxy jug is now gone (I didn't do it and am personally cool with it no longer existing) IMHO it doesn't change the grade at all

This route is maybe twenty-three feet tall. I was able to touch the anchors with a twelve-foot stick-clip when standing on the rocks directly beneath the anchors.
