BETA PHOTO: Run for the Border 5.8 climber is at the anchors

Description 

Slab your way up and reach up high for the first bolt. I went left up the holds and avoided the sharp plant thing, though it might be possible to go right. There are a series of big moves, nice position to clip, and regather for the next set of moves. Kind of awkard at times, yet fun. Nice, big moves for 5.8. There is a well shaped and manicured looking cactus off to the left about 2/3rds of the way up.


Location 

After first reaching the Mini Super Wall, go left and curl around and back up about 25 feet to a sloped slab leading up to a roof.


Protection 

10 bolts or so and then anchors.

Goodness, this climb is a bit awkward. Not worth repeating.
