Cactus Garden

Description 

This is a crack and dihedral climb all the way to the top. The route is directly to the left of Nurse's Hook and Doctor Hook and to the right of Flower Tower. It is one of the more popular climbs at the Moke. Take care if you are leading it as the falls can be sketchy.

It looks like some bolts were removed/chopped. Be careful leading this route.

All the bolts that were originally placed are still there. We added an additional bolt at the crux this year as well.

This is an extremely awkward route to lead. A sketchy hold is protected too low to prevent you from decking on the ledge. I wouldn't recommend this route for leading. It'd probably take two bolts to really protect the sketchy sections. I'd agree this is an R route.
