Description

This is an 80 foot line that starts out easy for first 10 feet to a big ledge, then it goes straight up on hands towards the bottom to tight fingers and nice, but spaced, finger locks with delicate feet. The crux is a big flake at 70 feet that must be turned (small roof) and above this flake is really thin up to the anchors (the topo says 5.8 for this, but it's not too hard). It has good protection with stoppers and small-medium cams...the anchor/belay was a big tree with chain and slings 80 feet up. You can then toprope an 11d (s) just left of Mesca-line, Iron Horse, fun but delicate and hard.

Per Carl Schaefer: the anchor/belay is no longer "a big tree with chain and slings", there's a two-bolt rap anchor in the middle of the face to the left (shared with Pony Express and Iron Horse).

Protection
