Description [Suggest Change]
The Cleo Amphitheater contains nearly 50 climbs, all of which are relatively easily accessed once inside the Amphitheater. Well-known climbs here include Queen's Throne (5.4), a perfect inside corner, King's Throne (5.6), and Tilted Tower (5.9+). Also located within the Amphitheater is Cleopatra's Needle, a 50 foot tower with a wobbly summit block.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Cleo Amphitheater: When hiking the West Bluff trail, it will be the first very prominent overlook you will come to. Walking to the edge of Cleo Amphitheater you will see The Plank just to the left and Cleopatra's Needle just downhill and to the right (North). King's Throne can be seen to the North as well. Accessing this is relativley easy. Head down the gully to the South where you first reach the overlook. The gully has an erosion problem, so be aware it can be a dirty, slippery down climb, but offers no threat to falling.
