The Main Wall is the centerpiece of The Wild Iris climbing. Nearly 100 routes grace the varied, bulging dolomite, with grades ranging from 5.6 to 5.14b. This truly is a crag for climbers of all ability. Some of The Wild Iris' most classic hard routes lie only a few yards from some of the best 5.10 sport routes in Wyoming. The rock here is generally excellent, with beautiful pockets and the occasional edge. This cliff offers every angle from slab to horizontal roof. The routes are generally on the short side, but long, sustained routes can be found on the far east end of the cliff at the Cowboy Poetry Wall. Most of the routes are bouldery & powerful for their grade.
From the parking lot, follow the main track west toward the cliff. After ~15 minutes, he trail dips down into a broad valley. At the bottom of this valley a trail forks to the right. Turn right here & follow the trai into the woods for all crags except Rising From the Plains & Rodeo Wave. The trail meets the cliff at The Five Ten Wall. Head right for Rode Hard & Cowboy Poetry, left for all others.
