From the first belay on Pony Express, continue straight up for 20 feet in an easy corner, then claw your way up the steep, blank wall, clipping two initial bolts, then 4 or so more. The moves above the 2nd bolt to the rap station are exposed and exciting.


Located directly above and slightly left of end of first pitch of Pony Express. Rap clips get you back to the the belay on Pony Express' 1st pitch.

A fun and worth-while pitch if you're solid at the grade. All but the second bolt are less than inspiring and I wouldn't want to fall on them.
