Another Mike Cronin classic! For optimal results, start your climb on the right side of the bolt line, and meander left as needed. This route gets real pumpy real quick and doesn't let up. The pockets are shallow but fairly obvious, which makes this route less of a guessing game than Night Train. However, the intensity of this climb will have you huffing and puffing as you say to yourself, "I think I can, I think I can!" over and over again. A great workout for the confident ten climber.


Locomotive Breath is in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook and is located just to the right of Night Train.


4 bolts. Closed shut anchors. Note: The guidebook reports open shuts, which is incorrect.
