Description 

The left side of the Cirque of the Climbables has a number of fun routes to enjoy with The Christmas Present (5.4 R), Peer Pressure and Lotus Flower (5.11a) some of the better lines in the area.

Getting There 

Hike north from the parking circle along the old road as it passes through some low hills, turns east and then meanders towards the base of Queen Mountain where you can pick up a cairned trail that steadily gains elevation to the now visible crags. Plan on 30-50 minutes for the approach.

There appear to be at least 3 bolted (newer?) routes in this area, right off the main trail. None of these are in the guidebooks, and none of them were the "Christmas Tree Arete" which I was looking for. Anybody have beta on these lines?
