Description

Besides Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks there's a large abundance of rock in the valley. I would imagine that most has been explored and climbed but there's got to be a hidden gem here and there.
"The Others" is a general name for all those other rocks you see but just never get the gumption to go to.

Getting There

Mucho hiking.

Mark Bowling and others did routes in this area as far back as the early 1980's. Jun 19, 2014
Dave Mahr, Paul Gleason and I did some routes on the "Staircase" and "Hinterland Buttress" in the mid-1970s. Great to see these images! Apr 16, 2015
I was able to remove both pitons from the 11a on the right hand side of Hinterland Wall on sunday. They both rattled upon clipping, and both came out very easily with just a little tug. I think the route is called Octoberfest? Anyway, it protects just fine without them. Aug 24, 2015
