L to R R to L Alpha
This line has some nice rock and engaging movement, but a large ledge between the 2nd & 3rd bolts makes for a risky outing. The crux is basically the 2-3 body lengths of climbing directly above the ledge, and it would be hard for your belayer to keep you from hitting the ledge in the event of a fall. This would make a nice TR after climbing Illegal Smile, but if you're pushing your limits at the .12b grade, there are plenty of better options at Cactus.
At the left end of Cactus, this is immediately right of the classic buttress of "Illegal Smile".
~8 bolts to 2BA. The last 3 bolts & anchor are shared with Illegal Smile. The bolt line weaves quite a bit, so consider some long draws, or (better) use the Crimpin' & Pimpin' start to reach the top of the ledge.
