Quasi Quasar

5.10b, Sport, 50 ft,  Avg: 1.4 from 5 votes
FA: Steve Cheney
Colorado > Canon City > Shelf Rd > Cactus Cliff

Description

Quasi Quasar offers an interesting jamming challenge, but is not the sort of thing most people are looking for at Cactus Cliff.

An awkward start leads to a flared open book and easy stemming. About 20' up, the features diminish and a few moves of actual jamming provide the easiest passage. More easy stemming leads to an awkward alcove and the crux.

Location

At the far right end of Cactus cliff, ~50' right of La Cholla Jackson, and 10' left of Cro-Magnum.

Protection

Bolts to 2 BA. You could lead this on hand-sized gear.

Quasi Quasar climbs the crack right of the climber.  Kate is on "Part Muffalo", which is a ridiculous link-up of this route & "Are You Experiential".
