The Mechanical Bull will definitely draw you in if you ever walk past the route. You can't help but wonder what it feels like to mount the large rock that resembles a bull head at the first bolt.

Start by heel hooking and breezing through some bomber jugs. Tame the beast by crawling on to its back for a no hands rest. Once fully rested climb through some small shallow pockets to a roof. Shake out and then get ready for a very powerful crux. Fire to a shallow two finger pocket, get your feet around the lip and make your way to a slopey jug. One more hard move delivers you to repetitious slopey ledges. Enjoy the immaculate stone and perfectly rounded slopers.


This route can't be missed. Just look for the rock that looks like a giant detached bull head.


8 bolts + anchor
