The south face of Jimmy Cliff is the smallest and only holds a handful of routes which get sun for most of the day. Of the routes here Downpour (5.8), Thin Flakes (5.9+) and Rat Race (5.11a R) are the best and perhaps worth a visit if climbing in the area.

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.
