Redman's Burden

Another of the countless 5.10s at Cactus Cliff, Redman's Burden begins on a ledge, moves up a face to a small roof. Move left to a corner, tackle the roof on good holds, and up steeper terrain to the anchors.


This is 2 bolted lines right of Cro-Magnum. Begin from a ledge/pedestal above the trail.


7 bolts to anchors.

[Hide Comment] It's been a few years, but I recall this route not being anything exceptional with the belay stance sloping and surrounded by cactus. Watch your rope when you pull it. Nov 22, 2011

[Hide Comment] My least favorite of the Burdens. The route suffers from loose flakes down low, dirty decomposing stone in the middle, and a weird contrived move way left after the roof that puts some nasty rubbing on the rope. On the plus side, the moves are at least fun. Feb 19, 2018
