Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Cleopatra V3-4 6A+ PG13  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Cleopatra Area
This striking prow is found on the West Rim directly across the canyon from the Top Gun area. Look for a triangular wall with an orb on top. Cleopatra is just right of this. Start with good pockets and go directly up the rounded corner using left hand side pulls, and more pockets and then left to the top. Classic moves and very clean. A sit start looks possible....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
