Description

This aptly named wall lies in a narrow corridor facing the southern end of the west face of The Sentinel. It is about 70 feet high and overhangs slightly. Five established routes are known: the justifiably popular Bikini Whale (5.12a/b), the rarely done variations to Bikini Whale: Railer (5.12c) and Bikini Beach (5.12b), Scott Cosgrove's unrepeated G-String (5.13d) and Against The Grain (5.10a) face and crack.

Getting There

The Hidden Cliff can be approached from either end of the Sentinel, but the easiest way to reach it is to walk on the Real Hidden Valley Nature Trail north just past the east face of The Sentinel and head around its north end (just before reaching the Thin Wall). A well established trail takes you back south below the Sentinel's west face into a narrow tree filled corridor. The wall on your right is the Hidden Cliff. A Class 5 ramp at the very end of the corridor gives access to the top of the rock.
