Description 

Just off the road, this small rock has good routes in the 5.10 range. The southwest side (Fire or Retire, Cranking Skills or Hospital Bills) is warm and protected from the wind, and would be a location on colder days. The northeast face (No Perch is Necessary, The Usual Suspects) is less sheltered.

Getting There 

Park in the south side pullout a few hundred yards before the Real Hidden Valley/Intersection Rock intersection. The southeast face is clearly visible from the road. To approach it, walk around the right and up. For the south face head left and around.

Step across a pit to a thin crack, then ascend to the base of the arete. This could be quite difficult if you are short.Alternately, pull third class moves right of the arete and traverse to the base. Pulling the rope through the draws before the second ties in might be a good idea if you choose this start.At the arete lay off a shallow crack to begin the route.
