|Iron Man Wall
Th is route ascends the far right side of the wall. Straightforward 5.6 slab climbing brings you to a break under a roof, where tricky technical moves on round crimpers pull you up onto the upper section of the wall. Easier if you're tall. If it were longer and more sustained, it'd be sweet.
Bolts to chains.
Dan gets some air time off the crux roof move.

It's got quality moves through the crux, and the bottom 30 feet is a great beginner climb. My sweetness comment means just that: it would be a better climb if it were a little longer and had a more sustained finish.
And thanks for the name props =). I laughed to myself for the hour after it occurred to me.

The route is well worth doing. I managed to underestimate the roof moves and fell on my first attempt. Good lead for the aspiring 11a sport leader as most of the route is 5.6-5.8.

I climbed (but didn't send) it on TR, so instead of following the easy bolted start, I took an alternative start straight down from the anchors--a fun bouldery start.
