Description 

Pony Up sports fun movement on rock that's still questionable in spots. The crux upper face is steep and high quality, but the lower traverse over a roof can create some awkward fall potential for both leader and follower.

Location 

Climb My Little Pony to the 4th bolt, then go up and right over a roof (.10-). Continue up 20 ft of mediocre slab to a steep face.

Protection 

13 bolts to chain anchors

While the rock on the first 20' after transitioning to the right face is a little soft right now, the upper half knob pulling and crimping make up for it nicely. Like any smith rock route, it will only get better with time!

Is it possible that this route has been up for two years and not yet been repeated?

Buddy of mine tried it apparently, and said that he broke off like a dozen knobs, so he bailed. Probably got loose over the winter.
