Featured Route For Contest Wall
Cactus Drop 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b CO : Shelf Road : ... : Contest Wall
This route is located to the right of "Little Mecca" and to the left of "Regroovable". This route is one of the newer routes in the area, and may seem soft for the rating compared to some of the old school climbs near by. Follow the shallow crack to a bulge, and work your way to the left. Some of the holds are hard to spot from below. They are also alittle sharp as the name suggests. This is probably one of the top three 5.10s on the Contest Wall. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
