Description

This formation is one of the largest of the "sub-summit" formations visible from the parking area. These are located high on the middle of the hillside, just under the true summit. The right portion is a clean face containing Pearl Necklace and Pearl Drops. The left has the wide cracks of Zircon and Garnet.

The base of the formation is quite sunny, but can be exposed to the wind.

Getting There

The parking area is best approached from the Barker Dam area. Just before Barker Dam, turn right off the paved road onto a dirt road. Continue past an obvious left turn (leading to Wonderland Parking area), and through a series of curves. At a "Y" intersection, take the left fork. Continue on the straight dirt road until an intersection. Take the left turn straight towards Queen Mountain and park at the end of the road.

From the parking area, take the old road over the mound. Continue on the road reaching the base of the hillside. The old road becomes a trail that contours the base of Queen Mountain, then turns up a gully, past Cirque of the Climbables - Left Side to gain the sub summit area. While on the road, a more direct line could be taken, both coming and going. It is over rough country, and remaining on the trail/road is the best option.

Allow 1 hour plus for the approach.
