No matter how many times I climb this, I never seem to climb it the same way twice. Fun crimps and jugs; a standard Astral Wall warm-up.

Not sure why Andy needs to be thanked...

Contrary to the name, I actually quite love this problem - I'd rate it as one of my favorite V1s in the park. Sit-start on the far-right side of the western-half (non-traverse side) of Split Rock. Traverse left until you reach the somewhat overhung arete, and then top out direct.

This line, as the 2nd and 3rd pitches to Junta Crack, has finally been finished. Attempted to establish all ground-up but rejected by a dead end, re-routing, and a giant flake that needed to be dealt with on rappel. A great 3 pitcher that summits at the top of Garfield.

P1) 5.9+ 65'
Climb Junta Crack. All gear. Tricky placements. Two bolt, semi-hanging belay.

P2) 5.11- 65'
Thin and balancy slab to a bulge pull (3 bolts). Take corner to huge roof. Traverse right and pull roof to gain cozy belay ledge.

P3) 5.9 130'
Start in crack left of belay. Head up and right across face to gain next crack (thin gear). Follow this crack near to the end then step left for easy terrain to the top.

Scramble up on top of the boulder to the right of most routes at roadside and begin following the obvious line of darker bolts on the face. Pull the roof with a fixed permadraw, then continue on small holds to the anchors.
