No sign of Wilma, though I made sure my climbing companion was wearing more vibrant clothes than myself.
A rap station down Cactus would be good. We had to leave behind a bolt plate and biner last year and rap off a single bolt after being suspended in space; though the stories a bit more complicated than that and involves not having double ropes, not reading the guide book, starting very late in the day in the rain, and climbing with Neil.....

I think if you go up and left and traverse a bit from the top of Cactus, there are some better trees that you can still reach the half way anchors above Agent Orange on double 50's.
Still, a new rap route for Cactus et al is on the cards. Either down the wall where Flying a Kite goes or otherwise maybe down Prickly Pair?
