Description 

Hidden Agenda is the left most bolted route on the lower/right formation. Start face climbing on good rock up to a difficult steep move/blind reach to the left to gain a shallow hueco on the overhanging blunt arete. Steep moves out of the hueco (crux) are are made using a inobvious kneebar (Hidden Agenda), continue up steep, difficult climbing to some tricky moves right to get to lower angle rock and easier climbing to the anchors.

Protection 

bolts, chain anchor

Definitely the best route on the wall.

Fantastic climbing that starts on a slab in a right-facing corner system, launches up the overhanging left wall of the dihedral and then turns the lip via some heady moves to finish on another section of steep slab. Classic!

One of the cooler routes I had a hand in putting up. For some reason Jack forgot to include my name. Sam Owings was the first to discover the kneebar. We were all flailing trying to figure out the bulge, thinking the line would be at least 12c. Then once Sam found the kneebar, we all sent it pretty easily. It seemed so improbable, but once the kneebar was set, it was game over!

Howie, been a long time. Thanks for the reminder, I do remember now and have corrected the fa info here. Those were crazy times, new routes going in daily. Who would have known, 15 years later I would have to try to remember the details...
