Real Hidden Valley is a circular-shaped area - I'm not sure if “box canyon” is quite the precise term for it, but hopefully you get the idea. It is home to some J-Tree super-ultra-mega classics such as the delightful Sail Away (easily protected 5.8 crack), the adrenaline-pumping Run For Your Life (5.10b scary runout face/friction), Clean And Jerk (5.10c crack), Leave It To Beaver (5.12a - usually done as a TR), the masochist's dream Fisticuffs (5.10b fists and larger), and of course the ever-popular Illusion Dweller (5.10b perfect crack).
A short walk south along the now paved road from Hidden Valley Campground puts you in the Real Hidden Valley parking area.

This climb is the centerpiece of Sports Challenge Rock and is located two climbs to the right of Clean and Jerk (5.10c) just right of a large pine tree. Boulder up a short face to a sloping ledge and from there make a series of technical, strenuous moves up an overhanging wall past a flake to a horizontal. From there the climb continues up steep rock past more horizontals to the top.Usually (and easily) top-roped this climb is a great climb to pump out on, as it is a far cry from the usual slab p...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
