Ride the Bullet is a good face climb in a great position right on the left edge of the Corazon Face (and thus very exposed). A crux down low (between bolts 2 and 3) leads to engaging climbing midway up the route and finally a somewhat contrived finish (which is why it is docked stars: the bolt line forces the issue up the arete when it would be easy to traverse off right on easier terrain to one of the neighboring routes' anchors). Nevertheless, this makes for a great, cruxy finish to Bulletheads East.


A dozen or so bolts. If you down climb from the anchor (which is not set up for rappel) to one of the neighboring routes' anchors, you can rappel with a single 70m rope.
