The interpretive sign in front of Showstopper Rock...


This large block is located East of Sports Challenge Rock and just off the trail behind an interpretive sign. Showstopper (V3) is the obvious steep prow while hidden on the East side is the Eppie Problem (V0) a challenging mantle with a poor landing.

Getting There 

Hike the trail into Real Hidden Valley (RHV) and make a right when it forks, heading towards Sports Challenge Rock. After going over a small rise with stone steps you'll descend the backside and the boulder will come into view on your right. The approach takes about 5 minutes from the trailhead at the entrance to RHV.
