Yosemite Valley, California USA

Avg time to climb route: 1 hour
Approach time: 10 minutes
Descent time: 10 minutes
Number of pitches: 2
Height of route: 210'
Overview
Ejesta is a little known climb that deserves much more attention. The first pitch is of descent quality with one powerful strenuous 5.8 section. The second pitch is amazing with splitter double cracks that gradually widen from tight hands to hands to fist. The pitch finishes with a dramatic and airy traverse to great belay perch. This is the ideal climb to build hand jamming technique. Right now this route gets three stars. When the cracks become a bit more polished the route will likely get four or five.
