Starts in a strange corner feature - you will get a little bit of everything with this route, pockets, crack, side-pulls, stemming. A couple of cool pockets near top give it its namesake

This a trad climb masquerading as a sport climb. Don't be put off by the single star rating. If you are comfortable with trad climbing style, you will find this to be a fun climb well worth doing (if only to give you fingers a rest from pulling on sharp pockets). I found it to be easier than other moderates at Iris. Beware of loose rock up high in the crack on the left.

This is actually 60' and sport/trad.

This climb is a blast; jams and and pockets with a cool finish. Fully bolted; no gear needed. Less slabby than I expected.
