Mellow ramp up an arete. Watch the cactus half way up.

Real easy going, great for a beginner first lead... easy to avoid the cactus on the way up if you're looking just don't forget it on the way down. wouldn't recommend to advance climbers, not very challenging and with the cactus in the way might as well just skip it.

Fun lead w/ one easy runout that will take a nut if you want to protect it. Cactus will attack you if you stay too far right. Great way to set up top rope on Liberace's.
