BETA PHOTO: The Mini-Mall and Desert Whale as seen from the to...
The Mini-Mall is a group of large boulders on top of a hillside north of Rattlesnake Forks. Four bolt protected routes and one TR, on quality rock, are 30' - 40' high and vary in difficulty from 5.11 - 5.12. Most of the routes face north but Desert Whale
(5.11b) faces southwest.
Walk up Rattlesnake Canyon past the turnoff for the Corral Wall. About 100 yards above the waterfall, head west up a steep hillside to the large boulders perched on top of the hill. The approach is 15 - 20 minutes from the parking lot.
