Description [Suggest Change]

Another somewhat non-descript line to the far right in the Pony Express area. Standing on the ground at the base of the routes Dead Letter Department, Seemingly Innocent, Prison Sex, Who's Holding, and Drug Abuse, the route Who's Holding can be best described as the single series of shallow, right-facing corners that makes a direct line to the top while staying left of the dead tree. The line passes some spots that are less than straightforward for protection, but nothing that feels dangerous.

For the best overall line, maintain a direct line and do not deviate left.

Location [Suggest Change]

This route is in the "no man's land" of indistinct crack systems to the right side of the popular Pony Express area.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A set of nuts and a set of cams to 3". A few 2' slings are useful not so much for the wandering nature of the climb, but more for it's undulating inward and outward from bulge to slab.
