Queen Mountain Base Rock Climbing
San Jacinto and yuccas, Joshua Tree NP
and The Arctic Circle
lie scattered across the base of Queen Mountain and although separated by distance and rugged terrain both are easily visited in a day if motivated.
The rock here here varies considerably from light-colored and grainy at the The Arctic Circle
to smooth and dark at The Wastelands
which gives a taste of what the The Underground
is all about.
Notable problems here include the Bounty Hunter Arete (V0+), The Mullet
(V1), Intrusion Face
(V1), The Reacharound
(V1 R), It's Da Oooze
(V1+), Survivalist (V2), Tinkerbell's Anus
(V2), Particle Accelerator (V3), Moral Wasteland
(V3), Whips, Chains and Lox
(V3), Side Dish (V4), Poker in the Front
(V4) and Anti-Matter (V5 R).
