A view of the entire route.


Get ready to channel your inner gumby and ride old Pokey! From the bolted belay above the first pitch of Neighsayer/Kentucky Derby/Breeder's Cup step left and approach Pokey's Arete.

You can place a finger-size cam in a crack to the left before committing to the arete above. Climb up the arete using slung chickenheads, bolts, and a few cam placements.

This can be rapped in two single rope raps with a 70m.


This ascends the arete directly left of the 2nd pitch of Neighsayer.


Long runners for slingin' pokeys, 5 bolts, and finger to hand size gear.
