Can you really call a climb with an offwidth crux the namesake "Classic" for a sport-climbing area? Guess so.

  • Perfect hand crack for 20'.
  • Right-angling wide grungy crack with lots of holds and huecos (easy).
  • 5.10 offwidth- sharp on the inside, rounded edges on the outside.

Scramble up to the top, where you can anchor with gear, off trees, or reach over to the La Espina anchor (which is far enough left of this route to be annoying for TRing/following).


Cochiti Classic is the obvious crack just right of La Espina or just left of Monkey Lust.


Cams from 1.5" (#1 camalot) up to 4" (#4 camalot). A cam bigger than #4 is probably reassuring to have.
