This is a partly developed area on the West rim that starts just before the canyon takes a hard turn to the left and extends to across from the Top Gun Area. It encompasses several buttresses and slots and ends with the main attraction, the tall and intimidating "Cleopatra" which is not all that hard but very committing and a clean and classic line. Elizabeth Taylor had just passed away the week I put this up.
Hike up canyon to the last area in the guidebook, Top Gun. Hike up to the West rim and look for the tall rounded prow between two other boulders.
