This area of Hidden Valley Campground (HVCG) stretches from just past the Stem Gem Boulder, which sits at the southeast end of the Old Woman, north to a little past the monolithic Function Boulder, which sits below The Blob's east face.

Problems here range from V-easy to V6 with a large number of problems V4 and under. Classics of the area include the Left Nixon Crack (V0 R), Lapse of Logic (V1), Bachar's Traverse (V4) and Scatterbrain (V6).

Getting There 

Head east from the Day Use parking lot and then make a left (heading in a northerly direction) following a paved road which runs through the Campground.
