Description 

Home of the classic Winds of Whoopee (5.11a), Miles Of Piles is a small wall hidden on the outside of the Real Hidden Valley. During your visit check out the man made cistern and look for frogs (if at all wet).


Getting There 

Approach as for Houser Buttress, continue past Zombie Woof Rock. Head for a corridor just right of the open area to the west. If you find the above mentioned cistern, you've come too far in, back out and head a bit further west.

Start left of a large tree. Stiff, thin moves right from the start lead to a stance below a roof. Jam through the roof (crux) and head left into a wider crack. Fist jams in the wide section lead up and out. While I'm told that many feel the roof is the crux, the starting moves cannot be ignored. This climb has something for all hand sizes and should not be missed. The descent is the only negative about this route. Descend via the climber's left.
