This SSW facing cliff is in the sun almost all day. The two routes that have been reported are "Cactus Pete's" 5.10a/r * and "Bury Me With My Boots On" 5.9 pg/r *. BMWMBO is 3 pitches of runout face climbing near the middle of the wall and CP is the straight up seam to the left with a couple of bolts (2 pitches).
See approach for the Upper Dodge City. Go there and continue through the notch mentioned before to the sunny wall on the right. There is a great view of the North Wonderland from here.

Went to Cactus City with a true local, Mr. Todd Gordon, and he turned us on to a better approach. Go up Rattlesnake Canyon until JUST past the Pyramid. Turn right and scramble up to a notch. From the notch the large face of Cactus City is visible. Head on over!
