Description Suggest change

The far left side of Cactus Cliff contains routes up until (but not including) the very popular Muscle Beach. As with all of Cactus Cliff, there are a variety of grades here and lots of quality routes.

Getting There Suggest change

Follow the Cactus Cliff trail from the Bank Campground. Shortly after the pit toilet, the trail takes a rising traverse up to Cactus Cliff. Take the first left up some nicely built stone steps straight up to the wall, which puts you roughly in the vicinity of Working Man.
