Felicia Terry leading Pony Express

Description 

Climb juggy rock down low past 2 bolts follow crack/arete system to anchor. Start watching for anchors on right wall or you can climb right past them.

Location 

This route can be found 50 feet right of Exfoliation Confrontation or just left of Czech Crack.

Protection 

2 bolts down low. Possible gear further up but seems unnecessary as it's low angle and well featured. Two bolt anchor with rap rings located on right hand wall (shares with "Czech Crack")

There appears to be a bee's nest near the anchors for this climb (Feb. 20 2010).

One of the starting holds broke on me after barely pulling on it. Very likely that the start is harder now. In general, this climb is loose if you step, pull on the holds left of the bolt line. Be careful.

Even after the hold on the bottom broke, this is barely a 5.7 by J-tree standards.

Wonder why Miramontes gave this 5.6...
