This route isn't on [Cactus Rose Wall] proper. It is left (east) of CRW approximately 1000 feet. There is a nice grey wall with two routes on it, just right of a huge [gully]. This is the best looking piece of rock that is left (east) of CRW.

This route ascends the left of the two routes. The start is kind of in your face with steep, sequential movements to good holds hear the first bolt. The crux for me was around the second bolt, with fun sequence-y and technical moves on really nice rock. Another minor crux at the third bolt. the anchors were missing hangers, so I topped out and went to the tree directly ahead 20 feet. If you bring a hand to fist sized pice you can protect the topout, although the moves aren't very hard (approx 5.6 or 5.7). Then you can hike east (climber's left) and go down the [gully] to get back to the base of the wall.

This was a very nice route that doesn't appear to get much traffic. Definitely worth checking out if you want to get away from crowds on a warm day. One of these days I will try to replace the anchor hangers on the routes in this area.


3 bolts, hangerless anchors. Either bring some, or top out and rig belay at ree 20 feet away.
