Awesome place to climb.
Became popular in the early 1980s, as one of the original climbing destinations in the NRG.Located in the north portion of the gorge it faces south-west and it 3/4mi long and averages 60 to 120 feet tall. Beauty is best known for its crack, but over the past 10 years many hard sport lines have been established here.
Ram's Head is a beautiful scenic overlook that inspires visitors that aren't climber to do the 15 min hike(a long hike for the NRG) to get the awesome views of the Lower New River.
Regarding parking: If there are open spots where the Williams guidebook designates, park here first and be mindful that it is a small parking area. Parking can be found along the dirt road as well, but this option should only be taken when the designated parking is full. Short approach either way.
Contiue past Nuttal and keep driving until you get to smallest Post office you've ever seen, take right contiue for 5 min, turn left on small gravel near top of cliff, hike in
Weather station 4.8 miles from here

Climb the finger crack to a set of shuts. About 1/2 way up this crack, it gets harder, but only for about 10 ft. The majority of the climb is 5.10. The route climbs in a similar fashion to many of the NRG 11's, as there are bomber finger locks between reachy thin sections. This is a route you should not pass up if you are in the area and this is your grade. There are direct starts to reach the ledge: Nazz, Nazz (5.12c sport) or Gone With the Wind (5.12a trad).

If the lots are full do not park on the shoulder of Lansing-Edmond Rd. Last Saturday cars were being towed. Park at another lot and hike in.
