|Cactus Rose Cliff
This route is easily found by hiking right for a couple hundred yards at the approach trail where it meets the cliffs. The approach trail is located just prior to the no parking sign about a third of a mile past the Bank camping area.
The climb is easily spotted as there are only two routes on the wall, Hell Razors being the right most with two bolts visible--and that's all there are. The first is a bit high but a good pinch/pocket makes it a safe clip. The second will get you to the roof, but expect some good moves to top out...and don't expect the anchors shown in the topo! Hike up to a tree to set up a belay and walk down after you've brought up your partner(s).
The route was straight forward with some long reaches to satisfying holds. The top of the route was marked by SHARP rock and a bit of a run out to the end, but the positive holds kept it fun.
There are two bolts on the route with the first a bit high. The topo in the guide book shows anchors that don't exist! Use a tree higher up the bank for protection and hike down safely.
