Description

Guarding the mouth of Steve Canyon and facing Sidewinder Rock - West Face is this east-facing wall with half a dozen routes from 5.7 to 5.11b with most 5.10 and easier. The usual descent is via a 60' rappel from bolts atop Candelabra.

The Orc (5.10a), Candelabra (5.10 R/X) and The Troll (5.11b) are popular here.

Routes from left to right:

Grand Theft Avocado (5.7)
Candelabra (5.10 R/X)
The Orc (5.10a)
Orc Sighs (5.10c)
The Troll (5.11b)

Getting There

Two approaches for getting to the mouth of Steve Canyon are as follows:

Approach from the large lot at Hidden Valley Campgound walk along the west face of the Old Woman using a well-worn trail which leads directly to the mouth of Steve Canyon proper.

Park in one of several paved turnouts along Park Blvd. a short distance to the north of the turn into the Hidden Valley CG parking lot and follow a marked trail east to the mouth of Steve Canyon. The west face of Sidewinder Rock and it's distinctive slanting dike system is a good landmark.
