The crux comes at the top as you pull the short but steep headwall to gain the ledge. The Falcon guide book shows 4 bolts, however the first one has since been chopped leaving a spicy (yet easy) climb to the 1st bolt


Joe Mamba is just to the right of Rodeo Revolution (aka the wide crack). Start by stepping into the right facing edge and head towards the dishes and the 1st bolt. It is a very obvious line of knobs.


3 bolts, no bolted anchors easy to setup anchors at the top though.

Very continuous 5.9 climbing after the first bolt.
As mentioned, the run to the first bolt is not hard 5.6-7, but is just high enough to have your full attention.
