Description 

Despite it's large size the west face of Jimmy Cliff holds relatively few climbs, and of the ones there only a very few are actually worth the hike. Ratings range from 5.4 to 5.11b, with most in the 5.7 to 5.9 range, and of these The Lone Ranger (5.9), Peanut Gallery (5.11a) and The Balcony (5.11b) are standouts.


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.
