Peewee Rock Rock Climbing
Peewee is the squat, somewhat unattractive formation across from the entrance to Hidden Valley Campground (HVCG) and just across from the much larger Cyclops Rock.
Despite it's close proximity to HVCG it doesn't see much traffic, as most of the routes here are at best forgotten. Two exceptions are Peewee's Piton
(5.10a) and The Oui-Oui (5.10c) which climb featured face along the right side of the north face. Additionally some bouldering is found along the base with Key Largo (v2) and Chip Flakey (v4) being two notable problems located at the base of the northwest face.
The best approach is from the paved road that leads to the Echo Rock Area. Parking is available almost directly across from the Hidden Valley Campground entrance, and a short hike along a trail leads to the formation. Plan on 3-5 minutes for the approach.

Lieback up the ramp to a manky looking fixed pin (a 1" cam can be placed 3' below to back-up the pin) which protects awkward, balancy moves (5.10a) to get established on a small ledge below a section of attractive face. From here the rock quality improves and fun climbing up plated face and friction leads to a sport anchor below the top.Great moves on ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
