Located near the far right side of cactus cliff, just left of Affluenza and White Man's Burden. Climbs a nice panel of rock on small pockets and crimps, then tackles a small overlap before the anchors. Given 12a in the guide, maybe 11d/12a. Good line.

3 out of 5 stars Technical crux

Punchy, technical crux if you are shorter than 5.10; taller folks might find this 11d as they can reach high for the good ledge.
