Description Suggest change

Cactus Carrie is directly left of Spiney Dan. Look for a rusted bolt hanger about twenty five feet up. The crux is near the third bolt (clipping this bolt can be tricky). Awkwardly spaced bolts, loose rock, and an occasional bush is part of the route. From the seventh bolt climb past rotten rock to reach the anchor.

It seems natural to veer right after the crux, but try to stay in the center of the route as the holds are better. Cactus Carrie is somewhat sustained and difficult with several areas of long fall potential. There are much better routes on Contest Wall to do. Miller Time and Hide n' Seek are good alternatives.

Protection Suggest change

Cactus Carrie has seven bolts that are oddly spaced. The crux bolt takes a few difficult moves to get too. Once you clip the third bolt, the crux is protected.
