This is the first cliff encountered on the east-side of The Nile Valley. It's about 75 yards almost directly south of Frontier Spires. A prominate crack splits a brown patina face on the crags left side and there's another crack to the right with a ledge half way. "Queen Bee" (5.6) is the crack to the left. To the right of this are "It's Never Robot City" (5.10d TR), "Tar Face" (5.10b TR), "Lady in Waiting" (5.5), (the right hand crack), "Queen For A Day" (5.7) and "Good God Y'all" (5.10c).

Getting There 

From the Queen Mountain parking area, follow a well worn trail/road NW over a saddle between some low hills. Continue up the trail/road passing a pile of basalt on the left. After about 475 yards a trail marked by two carins appears on the left. Follow this up a valley and over a notch to a wash. Follow this to where a faint trail heads WNW over another notch, then follow the wash to this obvious formation.
