Can anyone please confirm for me that the Hideaway crag gets afternoon shade? The Ruckman guide alludes to this, but its not clear. Any ideas when it gets shady? I would think the steeper lines may stay in the shade all day around this time of year.

Also, is the approach beta in the Ruckman guide still good?

Thanks!

The Hideaway.

The south(ish)-facing wall gets afternoon shade; the steeper stuff on the right side (Blue Typhoon, etc.) should go in first since that part of the wall faces more south-east. I remember the left side of the south-facing wall went into the shade around 2:00 or so a few weeks back.

The Ruckman's approach is mostly still good but park at the pullout noted on the linked page above, and don't stick to the left of the gully near the end (i.e., cross the talus where the trail does and end up on the east side of the gully near the west-facing wall). Continue up and you'll get to the south-facing wall at it's east end.

Here is an oblique view of the crag. You can switch it to an overhead view with a menu item at the top and get a good idea of just how much east of south the wall faces.
