DescriptionA large formation with some popular routes including the classic Hot Rocks (5.11b) a tricky seam to widening crack. Other good routes include Looney Tunes (5.9) a hands to chimney crack and Stand and Deliver (aka Spanish Bombs) (5.12a) a thin edge climb to test your crimping. Most climbs are on the southwest face so expect lots of sun although there are some good climbs to be done on the north and east faces.
Getting ThereApproach is via an easy walk northeast from either the front or back loop of Hidden Valley Campground. It lies about 150 yards north of Outhouse Rock, which lies at the apex of the front loop and just to the north of The Wall/leftside (Hands Off is here). The approach takes about 10-15 minutes from the parking lot in Hidden Valley.
