This route was my favorite onsight all year. Super enjoyable and quite stout....especially the second pitch. I'll absolutely add to the consensus that the Center Route on Cynical Pinnacle could be the best 5.9+ crack climb in Colorado. The climb took a lot of hand sized pieces. We brought a standard rack with doubles of 1/2" and .75", Triples of 1", quadruples of 2" and 3", a variety of medium to big wires and a 4" Camalot. A guy could probably lose a #2 and #3 Camalot....but I was glad to have them.
