Rising From The Plains is the collection of routes on the far left (west) end of the Main Wall. The crag is known for the bulbous low roof on the left end, which features 4 very difficult routes. This area also includes the long short wall to the right of the roof area. There are currently six more routes on this short wall. Most of the routes at Rising are on the harder end of the spectrum, with a number of quality, short 5.13s, including the once classic Paul Piana testpiece "Adi-Goddang-Yos", which takes the direct line out the left side of the large roof (unfortunately a broken hold at the crux has increased the difficulty & reduced the continuity of this line somewhat). There are a number of good 5.12s, and one intimidating BJ Tilden 5.14 ("You Ain't Bill Hickock"), tackling the central roof line. Novices will want to look elsewhere, though there is one 5.11, which is harder than it looks with a difficult section clearing the low bulge.
This sectiobn of cliff is at the far left end of the Main Wall. Follow the main track from the parking lot, staying left at the first intersection. When you are even with the left end of the main wall, head right for the obvious white bulge that is rising from the plains, so to speak.

Tres Hombres 5.13a 7c+ 29 IX+ E6 6c WY : Wild Iris : ... : Rising From the Plains
Tres Hombres is a nice little boulder problem route on the far right end of Rising From the Plains. This route is somewhat unusual for a The Wild Iris 5.13, in that it doesn't climb an enormous roof or severely overhanging wall. The cliff is essentially veritcal, with a slight tilt at the crux, and the climbing is rather technical on tiny sharp crimps and the odd pocket.Begin with easy moves up the black streak. A non-trivial 2-finger crank leads to another sinker pocket to clip the 2nd bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in WY
