Description 

The highest concentration of moderate routes are located at the OK Coral. This area boasts a five minute approach and features short, shady, west facing routes that are generally in the 5.9-5.11 range. The routes here tend to be a little sharp, and are generally not as classic as those on other areas of Wild Iris - but the area is still a fine place to spend a day, particularly if you're looking for shade. Most the climbs rise out of a dense pine forest, creating a nice cool cragging environment.

Getting There 

From the outhouse, follow the road right for between 50-200 yards. Multiple trails branch off to the left and head up a short distance to the crag. One of the most obvious trails begins in a campsite with a 25' bolted boulder behind it. This trail will bring you just right of the base of the route 'Claim Jumper'.

This strenuous route follows a right leaning flake system with laybacks and jamming. The feet are poor in this section, so good body tension is required. The crack system deposits you into some face climb above. The crux of the climb is finding go positions to clip the bolts in the flake section. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY

Love the pockets! Only climbed a couple of easier routes here due to a time constraint, and the end of a horrible business trip that included lack of sleep and Jeep issues, and a self inflicted hangover, but so glad I stopped on the way home. The rock here is awesome, especially the pockets, I am so used to crimps and cracks and slopes, the pockets up here are new and exciting. Definately coming back.
