Description 

This somewhat complex jumble of rocks lies to the west of The Sentinel and is home to about a dozen routes from 5.7 to 5.12c with the majority being in the 5.10 and under range.

Getting There 

Approach as for The Sentinel - West Face but instead of cutting left into the small valley with that formation continue west over some rocks to reach the formation. The west side is more easily approached from the vicinity of Wimp Tower or even Zombie Woof Rock.

Robert's Crack 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : The Otter Cliffs
Approach as for the west face of the Sentinal, but do not turn left behind that formation. Continue away from the nature trail about 200 yards and it is on the left, facing almost directly at the Thin Wall.This finger to fist crack begins with a small roof. You get to run the gamut on this shorty, everything from fingers, thin hands, to big teacups/fists. Well worth doing, and fairly high on the obsure scale for how far it is off the beaten path. Combine with Magnetic Woose to get your money...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
