Such a Line is the proudest crack line at the Zebra Cliffs. This Yosemite style splitter is strenuous and intimidating. An awkward right leaning hand crack leads to a pod (5.10c). Exit the pod and climb the right hand branch to the top (5.10d).


Standard rack to 3".


An excellent route, 3 of 5 stars. Likely the best route on the crag. Mar 8, 2004

I placed a bomber stopper high in the left crack with a long runner before veering into the right crack. If the rock quality was better I would give this route 4 out of 5 stars. Regardless, the climbing was fantastic. Sep 22, 2005

Yosemite style splitter? Huh? Anyway, this is the best looking line at the crag and probably the longest as well. Quality but somewhat awkward climbing climbing in the flare. Inexplicably gets no stars in Vogel. Jan 25, 2009
A number of shoulder-length slings are helpful on this route to reduce ropedrag. Many of the placements are deep inside the flare and pod. Excellent jamming with beautiful hands down low and a fingery crux up high. Jan 9, 2012
