With it's northeastern exposure, the right side of the Dairy Queen Wall is a good choice for late morning shade. A number of fun, short moderate cracks exist on the featured face, and as a result the DQ Wall is a popular and often crowded destination. Popular routes here include Frosty Cone (5.7) and Mr. Misty Kiss (5.8).
Park at the designated Hemingway parking area along Quail Springs Road and approach via the signed Access Fund trail to the south (just behind the restroom). Although fairly short, there is some scrambling involved in the approach which may be challenging for beginners.

Biological Clock lies on the far right (west) end of DQ on a separate, short wall. Look for the single bolt on the upper face.A fairly unusual route, as most of the protection is by tying off rock "plates". Start up nice 10' hand crack. This is where the fun begins. Move up and left on incut plates (some a bit hollow sounding). One solid bolt (replaced 2/02) protects the crux (5.9+) exiting moves. Getting to that bolt is a little spicey.
