Description 

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.


Protection 

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.
