This climbs the flared chimney and jamcrack on the left side of La Cosita.
A 5.9 variation can be done by liebacking the flake to the left.

This climb is a little pebble of a boulder problem in comparison with the huge monolith it rests beneath, but it is an interesting and steep 5.7. It and La Cosita Right were very fun diversions. Mar 22, 2010

Great climb, however aside from the first 10 feet this is not a hand crack as the guide book states... It's mainly a chimney as the pics show. Very FUN! May 18, 2011

This one is alright but I'm a bit upset that we didn't climb La Cosita, Right instead. We only had time for one more route and the sustained finger crack that is La Cosita, Right looks like a ton of fun. Left is fun if you're in the mood for stemming and a few fun lie-back moves. Jun 11, 2011

Wild and fun! Eats pro the whole way -- I sewed it up. Chains + rings at the top were in great condition November 2016. Nov 7, 2016

An excellent warm up prior to smashing up Sacherer Cracker. While steep, it is most certainly easy with good pro the whole way. Difficult to TR without the rope wedging in a crack. Easier to belay from top, then lower out your followers. Apr 21, 2017
