Morning Sun, afternoon shade.
RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Getting There

From the right end of The Cactus Massacre Wall, go up the wide drainage, pass under "The Sun Dial Wall", dark wall on right side of drainage. 75'-100' further up the drainage the "Hide and Seek Wall" will appear on the left.
Dog Friendly Approach: An easier approach, yet it is slightly longer.
From the right end of the Cactus Massacre Wall, walk climbers right past the drainage up a short slope, as if heading to the Civilization Wall, at the top of the slope, continue up and left, as if heading for the "Climb Bomb" or "Universal City" area. Keep traversing left, (and up) until you are able to see the right end of the Cactus Massacre Wall, the route "End of the Cactus", and the Hide and Seek Wall. To the right, (slightly below Universal City) there is a ramp that leads to the base of the Hide and Seek Wall

Thanks for the effort putting up this crag! Some thoughts after visiting today:

The rock quality and quality of climbing from right to left goes from fair to good. The difficulty of the climbing is on par with ratings at most modern crags in Red Rock. Things are certainly still cleaning up, although most large pieces of rock that are going to break have been cleaned off already. Lots of crispy edges however, and still some 'obvious' footholds that will snap if weighted.

Although things in Red Rock sometimes 'settle in' to their difficulty, my guess is that even as things break off, the difficulty ratings won't be affected.

Some of the anchors are equipped with rams horn style lower-offs, which aren't super common in Red Rock. If you are unfamiliar with how to use these, this video may be useful:

Lastly, although some of the bolting choices appear to have been made due to poor rock in places, the equipper seems to have favored closer bolt spacing higher on routes rather than lower. While for someone comfortable at the grade the bolt spacing is beyond reasonable, to those just beginning to sport climb they may find the first and second bolt rather far off the ground on some routes. Take appropriate caution. Mar 3, 2018
I had the pleasure of running into David as the glue was still drying on a few of the routes. Super nice guy and let me hop on the routes right away which was a really cool experience for me being the first to try out the route besides him and his partner.

First time using the ram horn style anchors as well but was really self explanatory and similar to what you may see in a gym lead setting.

Overall quality fun routes and was nice to have an area with a lot of easy routes side by side. Would agree with Andrew that some of the routes on the left side have high 1st and 2nd bolts, but if you're confident leading the grade it should be of no issue.

Thanks again David for showing me and my girlfriend the routes! Mar 3, 2018

The name may cause some confusion as there is another "Hide and Seek" crag in Calico Basin.… Mar 9, 2018
