Description

Highly visible on the drive into Hidden Valley Campground from the north, this slabby side of the rock has a number of easy to moderate routes ranging from 5.2 to 5.10+, although most are forgettable low-angled cracks and non-descript friction routes. 

One exception is Hobbit Roof (5.10d) a face to roof crack, although it's actually located on a small block below the west face proper.

Getting There

Most easily reached by a well defined trail that leads from the Intersection Rock parking lot past the west face of the Old Woman and into Steve Canyon and the Outback.
