A handful of good sport climbs are to be found in the Pleasure Palace. It's in the shade in the morning and stays cool on hot days. Bop Till you Drop is the primo route but the others are also worth climbing.
The crag is located on the West side of Misery Ridge above Mesa Verde wall. To reach the crag hike past the Red Wall up Misery Ridge towards Monkey Face. Look for a trail down of the mesa before you reach the cliffs in front of Monkey Face. The trail passing right through the climbs.
