Getting There 

There are three different ways to approach Jimmy Cliff, but perhaps the easiest approach is to park as near the gate on the Lost Horse Road as possible, hike west along the dirt road until the Ranger Station comes into view and then make a left which leads along the west face of the formation.

Another approach is via a well-defined trail which leads southeast past the Atlantis Area and then heads southwest to the formation just past the Aguille De Joshua Tree.

It's also possible to approach by hiking past the Houser Buttress Area and then following the trail as it heads northwest to the crag.

A fun, if short, route up the east face of Jimmy Cliff. An awkward start onto a ramp leads quickly to the crux moves pulling around into and up an off-fingers crack. Delicate liebacking with careful balance will see you through two or three tricky moves to easier terrain above. Protection is easy to place before starting the hard moves, but you may be above your gear before you can get another piece in.Fun route, it would get another star if it were longer (and closer to the road).There are few ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
