Above the major difficulties on Wild Horses.


The wall's namesake was one of the first routes established at the Wild Iris, climbing generally smaller pockets up the steep slab. This is one of the longer routes on this end of the Main Wall, and the technical nature of the climbing makes it seem that much longer.

Begin immediately left of a steep chimney. Its possible to avoid the reachy crux, dropping the grade a notch, by stemming to this chimney. Either way, gain a nice jug near the first bolt. Smaller slopey pockets continue up the slab where the footholds dwindle and good technique is required. Near the top better pockets lead to the big ledge.


On the far right end of the Wild Horses Wall, beginning immediately left of the steep chimney left of the big gulley.


Bolts to 2BA. Stick clip recommended, or stem up to pre-clip.
