Matthew Fienup climbs Dig a Pony (5.10d) at Bishop...
Good, well-protected route to the left of Flakes to Fresno that can be top roped from the same chains if you're not up to leading. The first crux involves a couple of solid pinches and small edges for your feet. The final crux is a thin face above the ledge which can be avoided by scrambling around left.
Bolted line to the left of Flakes
4 bolts + a medium piece right off the ground
The 3rd bolt on "Dig A Pony."

Beautiful, balancy crux just above the second bolt. Make sure you're on the left side of that bolt.

Great climb, but the flexing crimps and friable flakes detract a bit from the aesthetics of the climb. I thought the crux was the final bolt above the ledge, turns out the guide says that's a 5.11 finish variation. Neat.
