Description 

Mostly sport climbs but also a few nice gear routes. The climbing here is mainly 5.10b-12c with some excellent sustained routes and also some routes in the woods further right, which offer nice climbing on short shaded walls.

Getting There 

From the Bank campground, follow the road to a point where you can spot a now obvious trail on the left (approx 1/2 mile from campground ?), leading up to the cliff. The trail switchbacks to the base of the climbing and this will tell you if you are in the right area, by the trail you are on. Upon arriving atop the trail you will be by a block separating 3 routes to the left and others right.

Welcome To The Machine 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Colorado : Shelf Road : Cactus Rose Cliff
The climbing to the first bolt could be a little spicy for some, but the holds are decent. The climbing gets pretty fun at the 3rd and 4th bolts which are quite close to each other, there is a rib sidepull which is for sure the crux, but you will find better holds just above.This route is again a continuous one, like many others on this crag. It is a good intermediate route with fairly good protection. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Anybody have any info on the route on the far right (third line) of the Skinheads Wall?

It starts in some dirty ledgy stuff and climbs into some pretty cool and sharp pockets towards the top.
