Unremarkable, but not all that bad.

Three bolts lead up a pretty easy slab to anchors around 35 feet.


Left of the prominent buttress that holds "Red as a Blooming Rose", there is a dihedral. Then a big gray slab with one route. This route is "Iron horse..."


3 bolts to anchors

Especially if you've been climbing steeper routes with better holds, this one will feel hard and runout compared to other 9s at the Corral. Really not worth doing unless you're trying to push your pitch count higher, and don't want to do so at a higher grade.
Its slabby, the holds are small, and the bolts are below your feet for all of the hard moves.

I thought this route was fun, easy, and safe. The first couple moves are the only real bummer about the climb.
