Description

Hidden Agenda is a nice option for someone's first multi-pitch experience. It is well bolted, not sustained in the slightest, and has a nice location. 

Pitch 1: a few vertical moves off the deck lead to an easy slab up to the first anchors, 7 bolts, 70 feet.

Pitch 2: meander up very easy terrain to a section of slab that comprises the crux. Fun, but short-lived moves lead to the next belay, 8 bolts, 80 feet.

Pitch 3: cruise up the extremely featured slab. This partially reminded me of climbing the Flatirons; with generous bolting being the exception of course, 8 bolts, 110 feet.

These pitches may be easily combined. I took pitch 1 to the ledge with boulders at the base of pitch 2 and slung one to belay. Pitch 2 and 3 were then easy to combine by extending a few quickdraws.

Descent

Rappel the route with a 70m rope to be safe. P3 is 110 feet long.

I walked off at the top of pitch 3 and slung a tree to belay, so we could just walk back to our packs.

Location

Hidden Agenda is located on the far left side of Devil's Head Rock. Head up the climber's trail towards Recovery Wall. Before reaching Recovery Wall, look for a line of bolts to the right on a red section of rock that quickly gives way to an easy slab.

Protection

This is fully bolted - 8 bolts max per pitch, bring 16 if you wish to link pitches and not skip any bolts. The anchors are equipped with chains for rapping. I walked off though.
