Description Suggest change

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.

Location Suggest change

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

Protection Suggest change

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
