La Santa Muerta

La Santa Muerta is an excellent pitch. The route climbs on solid grey limestone up great features. Crux comes at the very top in the last 2-3 moves. A bit pumpy and a great addition for graveside.
An excellent pitch, thanks to the FA for the work you put it to bolt these routes.
If you count lines from left to right La Santa Muerta is the fourth route on the newly bolted lower section.

I just went up and climbed the route for the third time because it is that good.
I was a bit disappointed to find that the anchors had been moved several feet lower eliminating the final crux moves.
The route is still one of the best 5.11's in Cedar Canyon but it lost a bit of its finale.
I appreciate all the bolting Gordon and his crew put in. I was just wondering why the anchors were lowered?
Once again I really enjoy all the routes you have put up, Thanks for putting the time, energy and money into a crag that's not in your backyard.

All the routes last summer were 'works in progress'. Now the only real project is "Heucos" - I want to push the anchors up another 20-30 feet if possible.
I agree - La Santa is the best line on the lower tier yet.
