Mini-route with good holds and interesting features.

Note: There are two pretty cacti right next to the two top anchor bolts. It is easy to avoid getting poked by setting up your top sliding X sling anchor first before leading the route. This way climbers and cacti can coexist in peace.


On the near cliff band. The route to the left of Fancy Pants (5.10d) and right of Ten-legged Interspecies Cha-cha (5.7).


Two bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Fun climb, Great for beginners. I took a bunch of first time climbers top roping on this wall and they loved it. Two cactus at the very top make it seem a little ominous.

You're standing on sand and 10-15 feet from the river.

Someone decided to remove the two pretty cacti that were next to the two anchor bolts for this route. This makes me sad. With just a little care it was easy to set up the anchor without getting poked by the thorns. So much for minimal impact climbing I guess.
