Enjoying the stellar prow.
As you approach Cactus Cliff from the left end, the West, there is an inset wall with aretes on both sides. The left of these is Jumpin' the Gun. This interesting line starts on the face left of the arete and gains the blunt arete at mid height. Interesting climbing on edges and pockets gun for a cruxy bulge near the top. I thought that the route had a lot of continuity on largely bullet-proof stone. Might be a bit over-rated at 5.11d, but stringing it all together is probably worth the "d". A very good line.

I think for the onsight I'd give it an 11d because certain sections are pretty hard to read especially if you're getting pumped. Harder than lats, about the same as Gravitations?

This one along with Hair Trigger and Illegal Smile were put up when Cactus was closed to climbing. There was a rumor that the cliff would be open soon, so Steve and I went for it.
