|Graveside Matter Wall
La Santa Muerta is an excellent pitch. The route climbs on solid grey limestone up great features. Crux comes at the very top in the last 2-3 moves. A bit pumpy and a great addition for graveside.
An excellent pitch, thanks to the FA for the work you put it to bolt these routes.
If you count lines from left to right La Santa Muerta is the fourth route on the newly bolted lower section.

I just went up and climbed the route for the third time because it is that good.
I was a bit disappointed to find that the anchors had been moved several feet lower eliminating the final crux moves.
The route is still one of the best 5.11's in Cedar Canyon but it lost a bit of its finale.
I appreciate all the bolting Gordon and his crew put in. I was just wondering why the anchors were lowered?
Once again I really enjoy all the routes you have put up, Thanks for putting the time, energy and money into a crag that's not in your backyard.

I agree - La Santa is the one of best lines on the first tier yet. More routes to come

I found the crux getting past bolt 7 (in the black water streak). This is short but quite steep with nothing for feet. Felt harder than 11b.
BTW, every route on the second tier passes through a friable sandy section down low. Although the climbs are good, they cannot IMHO be 4 stars because of that choss. The third tier climbs are another story....
