|Iron Horse Wall
This route has shut down many 5.12 climbers. Start on the left side of the main wall and climb up decent pockets to the first bolt. Things get tricky from there. A notoriously difficult crux follows with a strenuous gaston section followed by big reaches to some small crimpers. The climbing stays continous and technical up to the bulge. At the base of the big, black bulge head up and right through the steep section, clipping a couple bolts before joining the finish of the Monorail.
Fun, long and involved route.
10 bolts, closed cold shut anchors.

12 a or b seems OK to me. Great route with an interesting variety of moves & a cool resting mono. The start seemed to wander left then back to the bolts here and there, at least on the chalked up holds. The upper jug haul was a blast too.
