L to R R to L Alpha
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.
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.

Featured Route For Cactus Rose Cliff
Alligator Ed 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a CO : Shelf Road : Cactus Rose Cliff
This route starts in the shallow, right-facing corner/flake on the far right side of Cactus Rose Wall proper, sharing the same start as Barbecuing Traditions (just to the right of the namesake route Cactus Rose). Instead of moving onto the steep face, it continues to follow the corner to the right to eventually meet up with the left-angling ramp (the same finish as Quesadilla Corner). Interesting stemming moves and great position up the ramp take you to the chains. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
