Just to the left of Pony Express. Climb the face on ever thinning holds until you reach a slanting thin crack. From the thin crack the holds disapear and you are forced to traverse over to Pony Express and finish the last 30ft of that route.

Descent Options:

Rappel or continue up Espresso or Pony Express.

3 out of 5 stars Short

Pretty fun route with some balancy moves and a powerful start. Too bad it doesnt continue up out on the face instead of running into Pony Express.
