DescriptionEasiest to approach as for Loose Lady via the marked trail leading from the Real Hidden Valley parking area. Tunnel up and scramble past the base of Houser Buttress to reach this smaller, similar style rock which lies about 75' right of Loose Lady.
Start by climbing up a gully along the left margin of the wall (pro possible here) for about 25' and traverse right onto the face to reach the first bolt. Make crux moves past the 1st bolt and continue up past one more bolt to the anchors; rap the route with a single rope.
This is a fun route worth doing when in the area or waiting for the ever popular Loose Lady.
