Description

The Real Hidden Valley is a small crag 150 yards left of the Prestige World Wide Wall. The wall reminded me of climbing in Joshua Tree. The routes are roughly 65-70' tall with great exposure. The crag sits in a small ravine high up on the hillside a receives morning and afternoon sun. The routes are located on the left side of the wall.

Getting There

Park the same as Nightworm Pinnacle 8.0 miles up the canyon. It is across from the New Economy Cliff. Cross the road and follow a loose trail to the base of the Nightworm Pinnacle. Scramble around the right side of Nightworm and follow the wash to the right uphill past cairns.

Prestige Worldwide Wall will be hidden behind a large cedar tree on the left. The first part of the approach will be about 10 minutes uphill from the road. From PWW, walk left for ~10 minutes west if you basically contour at approximately the same level (passing along the base of some slabs) as the west (left) side of the crag. You can get a glimpse of the top of it pretty shortly after contouring west. Drop down into the ravine to the base of the crag.

Note, the Upper Wall is a bit higher up the hill, probably another 10 minutes and maybe another 400 yards uphill.
