Description

The Arid Piles is a relatively large formation located at the southern end of the Lost Horse area and west of The Real Hidden Valley. Most of the routes were established in the 80's in bold style by an assortment of talented climbers including J. Bachar, A. Bartlett, C. Cole, M. Cranor, D. Evans, T. Gilje, M. Gingery, T. Gordon, D. Hensel, V. Kodas, M. Lechlinski, D. Nakahira, A. Nelson, R. Raffa, R. Raker, R. Vogel, J. Woodward, J. Yablonski, & T. Yaniro. Two classics in the area are 29 Palms (5.11d), a stemming and palming testpiece and The Acid Crack (5.12d), an overhanging thin crack.

Getting There

This area is easy to access from The Real Hidden Valley parking lot. Walk west past the Houser Buttress, Zombie Woof Rock, and Miles of Piles Rock on a climber's access trail to The southern end of the Lost Horse area.
