Description 

Novel, warmer location. Climbs begin off a platform that require a couple of fairly technical moves to get to the top of. Consider using the fixed belay anchor for the furthest-left routes. These routes are juggier than those found on Main Wall, and get more sun.

Getting There 

Keep walking past the Main Wall and you'll see an obvious big platform with a dihedral atop it. The platform is also home to a lone sahuaro (saguaro) cactus, hence the name.

Unfortunately, the lonely saguaro is dead. No sign of vandalism, looks like it just couldn't take the wind a few months ago.

Anyone have any info on the climb that is to the right of both 10's and starts out with technical crimpy moves for a few bolts, then goes into easy climbing with a crack and positive ledges for the last half of it? It's on the same wall as the 10's. Thank you!

You're killing me Chelsea. Check the guide I recently put together.

I believe the route you are referring to is "Planet Ron" (5.11c, bc). I have not climbed it myself but others seem to like it. The bottom is delicate and tenuous.

By the way, the name "Planet Ron" cracks me up.

I forgot about that guide! It's a really good one, too. Thanks, John! The climb is badass. I really liked it.
