Juan de la Cosa, with Christina F. leading the fir...


First pitch; a hand/fist crack to a very nice large belay ledge,(5.8). Pitch 2; On the corner of the north and east face is a inside corner with a finger crack, climb up following the crack system to the top, (5.10). You can 3rd class or continue climbing the the actual summit. The crux is getting to some great holds after the lay back where the crack is too small for fingers, this 8 foot section is tricky but well protected.


The route starts on a large platform on the narrow north face,.


Standard rack plus some small cams or wired nuts.
