After climbing "Pony Express" you can break left onto a 4 bolted face that moves straight up with a bit of wandering...keep it together and you'll be rewarded...lose it and you'll take a screamer!

3 out of 5 stars Short

Always looked at it but never gave it much thought. Finally got on it and it was better than it looks. Some tricky moves down low lead to easier climbing up high. Short route with shuts at the anchor so you can climb it and bail back to Phony Express if you're so inclined.
