This is the three bolt line on the left corner of the Southeast face of Gunsmoke Wall. Bacon Taco is a relatively little-known standout in the Pinnacles, a true diamond in the rough. Start below the small roofs, moving up and left to gain the first bolt. The moves here are a bit dicey - have your belayer give you a spot before clipping and watch your head under the roof! The crux comes next, moving up and right to a good stance to clip the second bolt. The second roof is an easy pull, leading to the third bolt which protects the last of the moderate moves. Finish up over easier climbing to the anchors shared with After the Gold Rush. A spicy lead and good, solid climb for the grade.
