Overview
Aside from a few challenging pitches, Iron Hawk is relatively straightforward and moderate compared to the routes around it. The climbing follows large and medium-sized features on vertical and overhanging rock. The KB Traverse has one of the scarier sections of fixed gear on El Cap (a horizontal equivalent to the Shield's Groove pitch.) The route is about as hard as Zenyatta Mondatta.
