|I don't see a route entered for the Iron Cross Sit Start. Is this an official, recognized problem? And, what is it rated? I've seen/heard V7 or V6... Thanks, Frank|

Just saw your comment. in the listed routes there is "Dream on" which starts on the far right side of the boulder and links into Iron Cross via a low roof and goes as a "9" (the traverse is simply tiring, the crux is the low roof).
The sit start to iron cross is unlisted but definitely a thing and starts by the tree on the obvious juggy flake with the first move being a left hand finger lock. It felt like a 7 or an 8 to me (and I've heard the same grades tossed around by several other people)

This is a great bouldering area.
The large face with "Beginner's Delight" is a huge wall with lots of great moderate options, and it;s a pretty high top-out to boot.

Just went to Iron Cross with a couple of my friends today and had NO idea about the dry-tooling accident with the hold after the iron cross move. I feel that because of this break, though there is a lower slot crimp, it is DEFINITELY not a v4 hold, and adds a little bit of difficulty to the problem...would you say it is now a STIFF V4? Would love input/discussion on this.
