Description

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.

Location

2nd climb from the right, if you are careful to count the route up the hill and to the right. Locomotive Breath is in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone guidebook and is located just to the right of Night Train.

Protection

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

I can see this as a great route but very hard for 5.10b. I had to use the bolts. Jul 2, 2014
