Tilden climbs the new 9a in Wild Iris

Posted on 10. Aug, 2012 by in News

Last fall I made it up to Lander to try out some of the amazing sport climbing there. I met up with BJ Tilden, who is a committed and humble climber and has devoted much of his life to the climbing in Wyoming and particularly around Lander. While we were trying Throwin’ the Hoolihan, BJ was working a project to the left. He got really close, but didn’t finish it last year. He returned this year, 10 years after bolting it, to get the red point of Moonshine 9a. This is the hardest route in the Lander area that I am aware of. Congratulations! Always great to hear about a “lifer” still climbing strong and developing amazing routes after all these years! Great write up on DPM about BJ and the route.
