Description Suggest change

The right hand quadrant of Cactus Cliff starts with the classic Funkdamental, the prominent arete route, and goes until the gully separating Cactus Cliff from Spiney Ridge. Like all of Cactus Cliff, there are plenty of quality routes here with a variety of grades.

Getting There Suggest change

Take the Cactus Cliff trail from the Bank Campground. Once you reach Cactus Cliff, keep hiking right (east), past the obvious central ledges, then a couple more minutes after the trail rejoins the cliff base. Look for the arete with the route Funkdemental.
