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.
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.

More cranking is required to pull the roof to a good stance. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
