Description 

Located middling deep in Queen Mountain West, the Frontier Wall faces northwest. It is a good destination for those looking for adventuresome 5.11 crack climbing.

Getting There 

From the Queen Mtn. parking area follow the trail until it begins to head east toward the Cirque approach. Head more or less directly towards a faint saddle left of the main summit. Tend toward the right of the drainage, where there is a faint trail. Continue up and through the saddle, after which you'll head down into a small valley. A trail marks where you'll head up and left into the Nile Valley. A broad wash w/a fairly good use trail can be followed the remainder of the way.

Moderate climbing leads up and right to the crux dihedral. Here the rock is fabulous - solid with superb friction. A very difficult chimney move gets you up into the dihedral, where you can use "dished out" features of the left wall for your feet. I've never climbed a 5.11 crack that required more leg strength or less arm strength - all pushing and no pulling....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
