Think it is hot? You have no idea what this place feels like in Summer once you get up onto the climbs. This cliff is a cold-weather destination.
Many very hard lines can be found here along with a bunch of warm ups, prefect for the winter roadtripping hard-body.
Walk east along Beauty from Nuttal, you'll see the lines, they are awesome.

Follow the crack of Spider Wand for about 20 Ft. Traverse across the left facing corner to reach the hand crack on the right side of the arete. Climb the hand crack to the top. The traverse has some fun moves and the hand crack is a cruiser. If your are going to choose between Spider Wand and Wham Bam, Spider Wand has cooler moves pulling around the roof. This stays shady in the summer until about 1PM. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WV

This is a strange description for this area; just dwelling on the heat and winter-ness of this crag. For what it's worth, I climb here not infrequently in the summer; as Jeremy says above, the area around Burning Calves is in complete shad ein the morning, and gets ample tree shade even after that. Around the corner, the Steve Martin's Face/Chorus Line area gets afternoon shade. Will to Power and Sportster do get sun pretty much all day, though.
