Description 

This route rolls through the main chunk of the Iron Horse Wall. Start on Heavy Metal Machine and pull a burly boulder problem on an undercling and small pocket. Climb 3 bolts (extend 3rd) and head left into 3rd bolt of Big Train. Pull the mono or shallow two finger crux, clip the next bolt and head left to the 5th bolt of Monorail. Keep traversing to 8th bolt of Iron Horse, where you get your first real rest. Head left into the Black Stallion which is an extension to Iron Horse and heads up and left. Don't lose steam while you finish on an enduro 3 bolts of crimping and screaming. One of the better routes I've climbed in Spearfish Canyon, full value.

Location 

Iron horse wall, bluesky

Protection 

10 bolts, extend a couple.
