This is a good little 5.9 climb that would give an inspiring leader a much needed challenge. The crux rears its ugly head at the very end of the route, just before anchors.
Depending on your perspective, the developers could have named this route "Locomotive", but this train is heading north, thus this climb is the very first one you come to on the Iron Horse Wall. It is listed as Number 11 in the Spearfish Canyon Limestone Guidebook, and is kind of a pain in the neck to get to since it is up a hill, and tucked around the corner. Don't mistake it for Derail, which is a 5.11a/b climb just to the right of Locomotive Breath.
