Description Suggest change

This route is in the popular Pony Express area of the West Ridge of Eldo. Just to the left of the famous routes, Iron Horse and Iron Pony, is a crack through an overhang that continues on and up for about 130' total. The crux is about 40 feet up where a right-facing corner comes into a bulge. The crux is short and sweet stemming and a bit of body English... a 1-move wonder. I don't find the crux move particularly hard, but it can be tricky to figure out and may be harder for shorter folks. I think it is one of Eldo's easier 5.11s for average and tall folks.
Mellow if you get the move right, damn hard if you don't.

Protection Suggest change

The protection is reasonable at all times, but not necessarily great. at the crux. It will do and is fairly safe. Take some small gear.

There is a bolt near the bush/tree for an anchor.
