One of 10 or so classic high balls in the Park, as well as one of the easiest, this is the first climbable feature you'll see on your left as you enter the real Hidden valley corridor. Refrain from setting a TR and just go for it as the crux is encountered midway while leaving the top is a feeling to be savored and not feared. Don't expect to send in a quiet setting as foot traffic is heavy here. That's ok though, more people to hoot as you top out!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
