Specter Wall Rock Climbing
View from up canyon
A steep face off to the left of the Hidden Heavenly Slab. The bottom half is steep, the middle vertical and the top is just less than vertical. Quality, featured stone.
Just after the Pirate Treasure is the Hidden Heavenly Slab. Between the two is a chossy hill with lots of loose rock. Hike just past this hill towards a huge boulder in the stream cutting back towards a small alcove/roof just left of the beginning of the HH Slab. There is a nice flat spot to drop your stuff and belay from.
It is easy to traverse in from the left with no gear on 5.4 terrain then turn the corner and clip three more bolts. This feels like 5.7 climbing but I suppose you could make it harder if you tried. As you turn the corner, you are on the left of the big Hidden Heavenly Slab. There are many bolted lines on it and you want to climb the leftmost, watching for the black painted chain and two bolt anchor. There is an optional two bolt belay on a nice ledge about 20 feet to the left that allows the belayer to watch the climber on either route.

It's possible to 4th-class all the way up the corner (directly below the routes) to the pine tree. From there, the true anchor is directly right, and the view-of-the-whole-climb anchor is way out left.
