The hanging groove is desperate to access unless you have the knack. Easier once the first decent hold has been latched.

Slopey holds, no good gear (if any) until after the crux. A lot of respect to Allen. Does anyone ever climb this as it is very green and overgrown, by far the hardest route I've done in the last few months yet 4 grades below some of them.

Iggy its in the name, and probably hard for 6'5'' giants. Its a teniuos finger jam and a reach through, maybe difficut for people lacking technical know how?

This route is not as hard as the previous comments make out, pretty standard E1 5c. Bouldery moves to the crack, then not too difficult to the top. I didn't have to do any finger-jamming or any tenuous reach-throughs.
