This is the middle line on the Hidden Wall of the Reynolds. Start on the large boulder that lines the west side of the hidden corridor. Use two cracks to begin climbing (challenging) and throw for a grainy hand jam on the left crack. A couple of size one Camalot jams leads to a pod in which you can get a double knee bar rest or a hand jam jug combo aka a "hug jombo". Then the excitement begins with a 0.5 cam ringlock to desperate flared 0.75 "hand jam" then throw to a decent hand jam right before this right-leaning, overhang turns into size 4 cam offwidth. Whew! All the while, the feet are grainy (despite 3 days of cleaning) and atrocious and the crack itself is slightly crumbling around you. This crack climb has VERY technical jamming for only being 35 feet and will make you out of breath. It took me several lead attempts. For people who can find this corridor, there is a sweet finger crack left to FA.
Hidden Corridor at the Reynolds. Above Pooh Corner and below the protruding tower on the left side of the Reynolds formation.
Fingers, 0.5 cam, 1, 2, 3, and a 4.
