Pullman Car is a challenging route on the corner between Archery and The Horse. Climb the corner using small holds up and to the right of the "Horse" flake. Continue up the obvious crack to the top.


Standard Rack, lead is runout near the bottom.

Yes, run-out at the bottom with some chimney off-width moves involving "the horse". Great pro in the upper cracks.

Once known as the "Horse's Ass" (Smith & Zimmerman, 1970). They give it a 5.6, which I think is about right if you wander around following the holds instead of trying to stick closely to the crack.

More natural as a lead if you wander; more interesting moves if you limit yourself to the crack and holds to the right of the corner.

I thought the gear was fine way down low at the crux. I actually slid off the slopers in the pouring rain and was caught by a blue x4. Once past the crux there isn't gear for a bit and you could deck but its much easier than 5.7 at that point. Climb this instead of the horse!
