DescriptionReal 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).
Sports Challenge Rock and The Thin Wall are excellent (read: popular) top-rope areas, each with a high concentration of fun routes.
Locomotion Rock has a few short, easier routes for the aspiring leader.
Several excellent bouldering problems lie just beyond the parking area (both west and south).
