A mega thin boulder problem on a variety of edges guards the route's first jug at the 3rd bolt. From here, work your way through a couple bolts of nice 5.11 terrain before the angle lowers off and you're treated (or bothered) with 50 more feet of sub 5.10.

A cool little boulder of a route- a nice big brother rig to Rosy Pussytoes. Burl! Would be at least 3 stars if not for the long, easy and dirty finish.

Named after my long awaited and much enjoyed first experience riding a mechanical bull in the streets of Tensleep on July 4th, 2012.


Labeled an open project in Aaron Huey's most recent guidebook. Just around the corner from Tutu Man, left of a bouldery 12c.


13 QD's to a fixed anchor.

Would be nice to add a lower anchor- I think it would definitely increase the traffic (and add a star)... there's just too much 5.9, filthy terrain above, that isn't worth cleaning because the angle is so low, it will always be dirty. I'll add a lower anchor hopefully in August.

Bottom is cleaned up... This is fun! and hard! try it!!!!

This was most likely a route installed by Matt Wendling or Alli Rainy as they and Charlie Kardalef bolted most lines there during the 2002 and 2003 season. Not sure why neither of them climbed it. Glad to see it was finally sent. Nice work Jstar.
