Niru cruising the splitter hands on Desert Queen. ...


Step across a gap at the base of the route and pull into the crack. Climb the sweet, but short hand crack. After the first 20 feet the angle eases.


When facing the southwest side of the Beak Boulder area, Desert Queen is the conspicuous hand crack on the tier below, and to the right of the Beak Boulder.


Pro to 3". Gear anchor.
