Description

Cactus Cliff is becoming known for its great collection of new moderates, but in the center of the cliff where the rock gets really clean sits this gem of a harder route.

Start between Risky Business and La Temperatura de Shelf at a shallow, right-facing corner. Continuous from the get-go, this route climbs up a gradually steepening face on increasingly difficult moves with thoughtful protection. Then, just when a spectacular jug-haul hand traverse to the right tricks you into thinking it's over, a great tricky move awaits you just below a small roof with the anchors in sight.

If you're climbing at Cactus at this level (or even if not, as the pro is really good) this is a "Must Do"!

Protection

9 bolts plus anchors.
