Description 

This is a stand alone tower that is clearly visible on the right hand side of the road just as one enters the Real Hidden Valley parking lot. If you were to park in the first space, it on the right, about 50 yards away. It plays host only to a few routes, probably not commonly done, but has one 5.13 for the hard man out there.


Getting There 

As per getting to Real Hidden Valley, then the first parking spaces on the right. Walk to the base in about a minute.
