Sorry, weather is currently unavailable.


With it's northeastern exposure, the right side of the Dairy Queen Wall is a good choice for late morning shade. A number of fun, short moderate cracks exist on the featured face, and as a result the DQ Wall is a popular and often crowded destination. Popular routes here include Frosty Cone (5.7) and Mr. Misty Kiss (5.8).

To descend off this portion of the Dairy Queen Wall scramble northwest (climber's right) down a chimney/slot (easy 5th class) that runs along the face of the wall.

Getting There

Park at the designated Hemingway parking area along Quail Springs Road and approach via the signed Access Fund trail to the south (just behind the restroom). Although fairly short, there is some scrambling involved in the approach which may be challenging for beginners.

As noted in the overview the standard descent is made by downclimbing a very secure wide crack (easy 5th class) that starts at the top of the wall and deposits you at the base of Date Shake. This is also the easiest way to the top of the wall if you plan on setting any topropes without leading.

No bolt(s) that I could find at the top. Semi-sketch down climb on the far right seems like the way to go. Nov 7, 2011

This wall is great for beginning trad leaders. There are a number of easier climbs and there are surpluses of both jams and face holds. Great gear and good fun. Apr 25, 2008
The bolts securing chains at the top of Hot Fudge wiggle from side to side with hand pressure. A party rapping off them stated that "They've been that way for a while." Feb 28, 2005
If you're looking to TR any of these climbs, an alternate (and, in my opinion, easier) approach is to come up through Rock Garden Valley. The backside of DQ is directly opposite Double Dogleg. Nov 4, 2002
