Description

I'm reluctant to post this route, as I have not led it, have no guidebook handy, and have not been back to Colorado for about a year. Here goes:

The route is next to 5.8 Pony Up, and adjacent parties climbing the two routes often interfere down low. Like many of the other routes, this one starts with a jug haul. Were it not for the miraculous finger pocket, it would be quite tough. This is definitely the crux of the route. The remainder of the route never surpasses 5.7 or so, with the highlight being a fun traverse up a 60-degree crack. I recall some loose rocks, but nothing terrible. The picture below shows nice views (route 2).

Addendum: note, this route is quite challenging for folks in the 5'2" and under range.

Protection

I don't lead climbs yet, but I remember that this route is well (and recently) bolted with big bolts. I remember two bolts for the anchor.

7 [now 8] bolts [plus] the anchor.

Eds. All bolts were replaced with 1/2" SS bolts/hangers 7/16. Thanks, Erika and Jim!

Location

This is the right of 2 bolted lines on this small triangular face, which is on the far left side of this crag.
