Location 

This is at the start of the Amphitheater to the left of Rally Racer. Rally Racer is the obvious, large detached flake.


Description 

This is a fun little crack route that shares an anchor with Rally Racer. I think this is a great lead for someone starting out on trad as it protects very well. The pod is a pretty fun feature and the crux seemed to be coming out of the pod. Single pitch with bolted anchors.


Protection 

Standard rack.

This is a super fun route, pulling out of the top of the pod is super fun on jugs

Thanks to whoever added new anchors! Pod of God and Rally Race now both have their own set of anchors.

A fun mix of jamming and liebacking. Protects well. The crux move can be protected by placing a #.75 C4 high before pulling the move, or by placing a #2 or #1 just below the Pod. Fun route!

Nothing but a good time and a Spring Mountain must do.
