Description

The climb is on the Great Buttress, it's the obvious bolted line on the left. A little runout and pumpy at the top. BE KIND TO THE CACTI!!! Did the upper pitches once with 3 good friends and a couple cold beers in tow. Worth the effort of tricky gear and route finding through questionable rock. I only remember one bolt after the cactus ledge and then making a skecthy belay on the next large ledge. I ended up getting a couple pieces in and clearing a beautiful crack out of vegetation on the final slab to the top. Belay off the fence at the top and answer questions from non-climbers while bringing your partner(s) up.

P1: 5.10a PG. 60 feet, 3 bolts.
P2/3: 5.7? R. 60 feet?, 2 bolts?.

Protection

Standard rack, 3 bolts, bolted belay.
