Cash Wall from The Vault.
This crag is considered by some to be a continuation of the Cactus Cliff, but is separated from the main Cactus cliffband by a road the heads up to onto the mesa above Cactus. There are at least 4 advanced routes on this crag: Payment in Pump
, 13; Cache in the Vault, 13-; Money Changers, 12, Wad of Dead Presidents, 11+.
Like Cactus, this cliff faces South, so recieves sun most of the day. Routes here tend to be relatively short, and rick quality is highly variable.
According to Kirra
: "This cliff was also acquired as part of the Access Fund's 1998 Cactus Cliff acquisition."
This crag is located to the NE of the bulk of the area known as The Bank. It is directly West of Cactus Cliff, across the obvious road from Cactus, and immdiately North of the NE-facing section of The Vault (aka the Gem Wall).
To approach from the new parking area by The Bank Camground, follow the road NW towards The Bank for ~100yds. Pickup the trail on the right side of the road that descends into the canyon. Follow this trail for ~5 minutes, passing below the 2150 Wall, to a terminus at the road that heads up above Cactus Cliff. Turn left and follow the road uphill towards Cactus. Continue along the road as it banks hard right, passin the new toilet, then banks left, heading through the cliff band. About 30 yds after the left turn, trun onto a cairned trail on the left side of the road. This trail reaches The Cash Wall in ~ 1 minute, and traverses the entire cliff band.

The rock is standard Shelf Road fare, pretty solid and topping out on the sharp black water drop features.The climbing is maybe 5.11 up to the second horizontal break, where a good rest can be had. Then pull off a couple difficult moves followed by some thin climbing that's not as hard to the anchors. It is however possible to fall off after the crux if you're not thinking with your feet. For folks with a large wingspan (maybe 6'4"), there is a tricky to get pinch out right that was vital for...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
