Cactus Park is for the desert sherpas and tough fingered.

Getting There 

Take the left into the park from CO 141, drive 1/2 - 3/4 mile. 4 wheel or walk left up to the bottom of the cliffs, and enjoy the huge area of boulders. The first parking lot on your right is a great place to park if you need to walk, the area is directly left of that parking lot approx. 1/3 mile. The rock can be sharp and brittle, it needs more mileage.

Climbing Season

Sit start underneath the obvious overhang (just left of Nietzsche's Fingers, moving to the south face) with shallow, left hand jug, right hand on crimp. Get a great left foot (breaking chunks off still though) and your right foot kinda dangles. Pull up for a right hand bump, traverse left. The next is a big move/dyno up to the horn, be easy though, that horn looks questionable, keep solid feet! Move up the belly, and top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
