Description 

Steep, small and secluded, the Hidden Wall offers some real gems. Most routes are 5.10 or harder and bolted.

Getting There 

Park at the Sparrow Springs visitor center, fill out a permit and then take the Crowder's Trail back toward Freedom Mill Road. Cross Freedom Mill and follow signs for the rock top trail. After the rock top trail turns right and splits off from the Crowder's trail, follow the faint trail between the yellow sign and the red sign. Soon the trail will make a hard left and you will see the beginning of the cliffline. Continue down the trail until you see the main cliff on the left with most of the sport climbs. High step up onto the trail and it will deposit you right below top that direct, elastic rebound theory and the whining.

Why are there so many pg13 and R rated climbs out there? Or what makes so many of the routes pg13 or R rated? I usually imagine large run outs between protection with ground fall potential or hitting a ledge. Bad bolts or spicey gear?
