Description

This east facing formation lies north of Real Hidden Valley, above the wash that begins near the apex of the Real Hidden Valley Nature Trail. It has several fun trad and sport routes that are isolated, but not too long of a walk to reach. Early morning sun, shady in the afternoon. Best on warmer days.

Routes include: Cowabunga, (5.10c), Hollywood and Bovine, (5.10d), Udder Chaos, (5.10c), Upper Cow, (5.10a), Milkman (aka Reach For A Peach), (5.10a), Cottage Cheese, (5.9), Cow Pie Corner, (5.6), One Bolt Jolt, (5.11a), and Super Quickie (5.12a).

Getting There

Either park at the Real Hidden Valley parking area, and take the nature trail into Real Hidden Valley. Here the trail forks; go left and follow the nature trail north and then east for about 400+ yards, to its apex (near the Brown Wall). Turn left (north)into the wash and follow the wash north for about 150 yards. The cliffs will be seen on your right (west) high on the hillside.
