Description

A tantalizing splitter that begs to be climbed.

Pitch 1: starts off a tad steep, tricky and thin (crux of the route); jam your way through the 0.5s til it opens to perfect hands.  Continue rambling up the crack then right facing corner to the obvious belay ledge over a bulge on the left. [5.10b]

Pitch 2: get back in the crack, now a perfect low angle hand crack, after about 20 feet traverse right to a separate crack system (nerviosismo criss-crosses the route here and heads left up a dike). The crack now pinches down to a perfect beautiful finger crack. Looking up you’ll think how can this only be 5.9!  But Its low angle and the slab is gritty.
[5.9]

Location

Left side of La Cebra (your likely to see a party on this trade route from the picnic table in La Junta)

Protection

Double Rack 0.4 to #2 optional #3
I felt like three 0.4s and three 0.5s would be nice if I was at my limit
