BETA PHOTO: Cactus Crack

Description 

This line climbs the beautiful splitter dihedral. Some of the best jams in the Ozarks are found at the start of this climb. Climb through tight hands, offwidth, a couple of tiny roofs, and more to finish on a large ledge to your right.

Watch out for the cactus guarding the ledge.

Location 

Route is located in an obvious dihedral. It is above a house sized boulder that can be seen from road during the fall and winter.

Protection 

Single rack to #5 c4. Depending on comfort one could use doubles from .75-2 c4

We left 2 nuts and a sling with a quick link for the anchor
