Description 

Two massive boulders pushed into a hillside. Tall, amazing problems. micro-chossy because of the small number of visitors. small area contains some of the best problems in new england from v5 to v11+

Getting There 

From the parking lot, follow path to Hideaway. Instead of taking sharp right from logging road, continue straight for ten or so minutes, until an obvious fork, commonly muddy. From there go right until you find a cairn on the right hand side (not more than 5 mins) this trail will lead to the happy valley. Better to have somebody who knows show you first. Good luck.
