Matthew Fienup climbs Dig a Pony (5.10d) at Bishop...


Good, well-protected route to the left of Flakes to Fresno that can be top roped from the same chains if you're not up to leading. The first crux involves a couple of solid pinches and small edges for your feet. The final crux is a thin face above the ledge which can be avoided by scrambling around left.


Bolted line to the left of Flakes


4 bolts + a medium piece right off the ground

Beautiful, balancy crux just above the second bolt. Make sure you're on the left side of that bolt.
