Description

It is safe to say that every climber who has set foot in the pristine wilderness of Queen Mtn. would agree that the area comprising Walt's Rocks features some of the very best crack, face, and mixed pro climbs in Joshua Tree. With more than 20 multi-star routes to choose from at Walt's Rocks alone, Queen Mtn. beckons the adventurous climber for multiple encounters.

Getting There

An excellent description to access the parking area near the southern portion of Queen Mtn. is given in Randy's guide book. From the parking lot, follow the dirt road toward the large mountainous area. Where the dirt road ends, a trail veers in an easterly direction to a steep north / south running gully. Follow the trail up the gully until a plateau is reached. The Pearls are visible to the north and Cirque of the Climbables are east and below the plateau. Veer northwest until you reach a crest where Walt's Rocks will be visible on a ridge to the north. Follow a well marked trail with cairns over rocky terrain to a large east to west running drainage. Upper Walt's Rocks are on the eastern end of the area and Lower Walt's Rocks are located towards the west end. Allow 45 minutes to an hour from the car.
