The Climb 

A nice face route, with a couple of cruxes. The hangers look aged, but they (6) are solid. There are two other routes one the wall that are good also. It is a two rap decent, one from bolts, and the other from a small tree into the valley where the Oblisk is.


Gear for belay or a bit off the left is a rap station that may be subsituted.

This seems to be a description of Cactus Dog (5.10a).

Joan Jetsen is the center route of three on the Pea Brain. The two bolts are absolute shite and it shouldn't be lead in its current condition. Bolt 1 is a rusty 1/4" split shaft with most of its short length visible behind a thin Leeper veneer. The second is quite shiny 1/4" something, with a bit more metal hidden in the rock. Both are shudder worthy.

After reading your description of Cactus Dog, you may be correct. I'll have to double check in a couple of weeks
