Nice climb, you can lead this one although there is a good 15 foot section without any pro that is a tad tricky... Don't falter.

The top was the best part as it involves some fun finger jams. Pretty straightforward climb though... The biggest cam I used was the purple Camalot and one #00 C3 the rest was stoppers.

A tad slippery too...

two-bolt top anchor say like ten feet / three meters down from the top of cliff (but above where it gets sustained steeper below).
I think this anchor is shared with "Groovin".

For setting up Top-Rope, perhaps could rappel in (with some diagonal) from the top anchor for "Welcome to the Iris Slab".

Lots of fun moves, with some jamming in the crack as well as frictional footwork.

Again, a good challenge and plenty of variety of kinds of moves on a slab with a crack.
