Misery is so named for the feeling one gets when attempting to climb here on the weekend. Ease of access and many good beginner climbs (along with some pretty hard routes) makes this a very popular area for groups.
To access Misery, head up the West bluff trail from the South until you see a freeway off ramp-style pull off. If you have reached Cleo's Ampitheater, you have gone too far.Follow this dirt trail to the top of the cliff.
