Description

40ft sandstone cliffs just inside the George Washington National Forest in Rockingham County. Well shaded topropes and leads as well as bouldering on decent rock.

Getting There

15 miles or so from Harrisonburg, VA.

Take 257 from Dayton, VA through the town of Ottobein. Continue following 257 until the route turns right at the 257 grocery. 2 miles up the road you cross a small bridge.
Shortly after the bridge turn right onto Hidden Quarry Road (Fireroad 62). Follow this about .4 miles to a well defined gravel parking lot on the right.

Park here and take the yellow-blazed trail that starts on the right side of the parking area. Follow this as it rises and falls for about 10 minutes until it turns sharply left. After about 50 yards you'll get to the first stream crossing—the trail will T here, stay left. The yellow blazed trail will cross the stream three more times (four total) and right before the fifth stream crossing the yellow blazed trail will cut up right (steeply) and take you straight to the Lower Hidden area. The bolted route (2 bolts) in front of you is Snowblower (5.9+)
