Shelf Road / Cactus Cliffs


Ann on Slicer 5.10c

We don’t get on the rock at Cactus Cliff until the afternoon, but the perfect weather holds for us. The book we have makes it look like Shelf Road is dominated by 5.11 and 5.12 routes, but we find a couple of good easier climbs. It looks like a lot of newer routes have been put up too. The rock is super-grippy, pocket-riddled limestone – fun stuff.

Routes: Crynoid Corner, 5.7, excellent dihedral hand crack. Slicer, 5.10c, steep face with two small roof problems.
