DescriptionThis is a cliff stacked with quality lines that more than make up for the somewhat lengthy (especially by Josh standards) approach. The rock is typically of exceptional quality with dark patina throughout and the cracks are often parallel, deep and smooth - none of that light-colored grain so common in the rest of the Park!
Numerous multi-star crack and face routes exisit up to 150 feet in length although most are around 100 feet or so. The only catch is the majority of the best routes are 5.11a and harder, although exceptions do exist.
Some of the best here include At Your Pleasure (5.8), Escape to Queen Mountain (5.10a), White Rain (5.11a), Mojave Queen (5.11a), Crack Queen (5.11a), Upper Mojave (5.11a) and Drag Queen (5.11c R).
Routes listed from left to right:
Route Beer (5.11a)

At Your Pleasure (5.8)
Where Were You? (5.10a)
