This wall offers great limestone with shade most of the day. Most of the routes are in the 5.10 range on some of the best limestone the canyon has to offer. The climbs are well protected.

Getting There 

Continue up the canyon, past the water fountain, over the first bridge, then over the second. The wall directly in front of you as you cross the second bridge is the Hidden Wall. Not very hidden, must be so-named because it is hidden from the sun.

A mostly vertical to slightly overhanging limestone climb on crimps and jugs, including a few sidepull/undercling jugs that make it interesting. The angle eases after the fourth bolt. Overall a fun climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Back in the early 90's when this wall was being developed there were a lot more trees in front of the wall, and so it was 'hidden' from view. You could be climbing there and unless you were talking or at the top of the routes, no one would know that you're there.

I love this wall. The routes on the left are on stunning rock, the routes on the right are longer and fun. In general but with a couple exceptions, I think the routes here are stiff for the grade and they can leave you feeling humbled. With shade almost all day long, this wall is awesome in the summer. These are technical, powerful routes.

there is also a great route in the middle of plotted routes on the main picture of The Hidden. i've been told it's called Doom and its an 11b. the route isn't too tough till you get to the last two bolts before the chains. that's where you get to have some fun.

Lost a pair of La Sportiva Solutions, size 40 or so. I realize this question may be futile, but I mistakingly let my friend pack the gear bag as I packed the rope and he didn't put my shoes in the bag.
