The tall and formidable east face of The Blob faces into Hidden Valley Campground proper, and despite it's size has but a small number of poor to good routes from 5.8 to 5.13b in difficulty. Highlights here include Surrealistic Pillar (5.10b) a steep and often overlooked crack system, I'm Not Afraid Anymore (5.11b R) a seldom done Walt Shipley route which slithers it's way up a steep portion of the face and Perfidious (5.6 C2+) a thin overhanging crack/seam which has recently gone free at 5.13b, although most seem happy to still aid it.
Most easily approached by walking along the paved road through the Campground past the east face of the Old Woman and the southeast face of The Blob.

A super route that's not often done. Go straight up to finish. Bring the rack - all of it. The route is around the corner and right from "Mamma Woolsey" up the striking black pillar. DO IT!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
