Jonathan Siegrist has repeated Moonshine (5.14d) at Wild Iris, near Lander, Wyoming. The bouldery limestone route was first climbed by local climber BJ Tilden in 2012, and was probably Wyoming's first 5.14d (9a). Dave Graham and Daniel Woods repeated Moonshine not long after the first ascent.

Siegrist redpointed the route after many days of effort on July 14, belayed by Tilden. He has written a great summary of recent climbing during and after the International Climbers Festival in Lander, including the first ascent of a very old Todd Skinner project in the Little Popo Agie area, Strawberry Roan (5.13d), by Leif Gasch.

Date of Ascent: July 14, 2013
