Description Suggest change

One of the finer routes at The Overlook. A nicely pocketed, sustained face route. It is a very popular top-rope and a proud gear lead because of the tricky gear placements in pockets. By longtime, documented agreement by local climbers do not bolt this face route.
The route gets its name from a Cholla cactus that used to be at the base of the route that pricked many climbers that came off the rock at the start. The cholla disappeared a few years ago.

Location Suggest change

The sweet, pocketed face with no bolts! Accessed by the easy scrambling on top of the Lower Buttress below the main wall. Shown as route number 10 on the Overlook route topo photo.

Protection Suggest change

Small to medium cams (up to #1 camalot) and tri-cams for the pockets. Chain anchor at top.
