DescriptionLocomotion rock is at the far southeast end of the Real Hidden Valley, a few hundred yards south of the Hidden Tower. The crag is visible from almost anywhere from the north or west once you are on the main Real Hidden Valley loop trail.
The often-climbed routes face primarily west/southwest on the large slab-like face. Most of the routes start from the ground in a slot between a second small cliff and are thus shaded from behind by the other rock. The ground belay remains primarily shady and cool. The climbs here are a mix of Easy trad leads (5.6-5.8) and harder topropes (5.10b-5.11c) with nothing inbetween to speak of. The rock is solid and trustworthy for protection.
The popular lines are Leaping Leaner (5.6) and Jumping Jehosephat (5.7). Either of these would be a fun moderate, but may be difficult for someone who does not jam well.
Rap anchors on the top of each end of the rock will return you to the base.
