This northeast-facing crag is located on the west side of The Valley Of Voices in the northern portion of OZ. The crag features mostly crack climbs on high quality dark grey rock that are relatively short but worthwhile. About 200 yards southeast of the main crag is Realm Of The Flying Monkeys (5.11a), a fun sport climb on the overhanging north face/arete of a large boulder.

Getting There 

One approach to reach the Valley Of Voices is to park in a pullout with an intrepretive sign on the west side of the road about 3.2 miles south of the 29 Palms entrance to the Park (about 1.5 miles north of the Sheep Pass Road/Pinto Basin Road intersection). Hike west up a broad drainage for about 1 mile until a steep, narrow north-facing drainage is encountered. Hike up the drainage and enter the Valley Of Voices.

There are two parallel cracks about 70' left of Hawk's Nest (5.7), an obvious splitter in the middle of the crag. This route takes the leftmost line. The right line is Thirteen Cheeps (10c). Inital movement and gear placement is awkward because the crack is overhanging and in the back of a shallow pod. Once over the bulge, the climbing eases to the top. Fun but short climb (2 out of 5 stars)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
