Description

The Old Woman boasts several fine lines including the notorious Double Cross (IMO, the hardest 5.7 in the Park), Dogleg (an awkward 5.8), Toe Jam, the crowd-pleasing Geronimo, and if you're up to it - Bearded Cabbage (5.10c) and Spider Line (5.11d).

Getting There

From the bulletin board at Hidden Valley Campground, turn around and you are looking directly at the east face of The Old Woman. The right-angling crack is Toe Jam / Spider.
