  • Description 

    This route is the classic line for this formation, it is quite long due to its wondering traversing nature. Great climbing up the middle of the formation, following all of the most obvious features this wall has to get to the top. The crux is not falling into the patches of Cacti that litter some of the features you climb above.


    Cactus Impactus starts right at the center of toe of slab. Climb face features up 25' until it becomes possible to Traverse right under a small roof exiting it on its right side. Follow broken cracked flake features up and right until it becomes possible to traverse right under large capped roof system. Traverse under this until the end.


    Gear to 3 inches, gear anchor.
