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.

This fun route is left of Bronto's or Us, The and follows a crack up to a roof, where one makes the crux moves out and right under a roof. From here lieback around the corner of the roof and up easy climbing on very good rock. The protection down below is somewhat shaky, but the crux moves pro'd with small cams under the roof itself are bomber. Long runners there. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
