BETA PHOTO: Cactus Crack


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.


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.


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
