Jeff and Michael Rose climbing on The Hidden.


A steep, slightly pumpy jaunt up some solid, textured limestone on solids holds, with one or two difficult moves.

Find the positive holds and start, climbing to a thin ledge (or more accurately: big footholds), then continue up on small holds. Past the third bolt you've got to start moving right, even though it looks like you really would rather not.

Keep trending right to the chains, shared with two other routes.


5 bolts, chain anchors. Anchors are shared with the two routes to the right.


The left-most bolted line on the wall. After the fourth bolt head right, rather than left (going left puts you on Knightmare).

does anyone know if there is a second pitch to this route? and has anyone ever done it? My buddy and I did this route about a year ago and it looked like there was but we didn't have any information on it nor the time and gear to do it at that moment. Thanks!

This route is a short and easy one on great rock right next to 44 cal. killer, which makes a great warm up. The start is more like a 5.9, than the climb slowly gets harder up to a 5.10b. The route doesn't look all that appealing when compared with its neighbors, but the top few bolts offer some great moves. Don't forget to move right to 44 cal. killer's chains unless you're doing the other pitches.

A slow pump for such a short route. An Ok warm-up (I thought "Metal" was better).

It started raining on me as soon as I got on the route and it turned into a waterfall which made for some very interesting climbing. Fun route to solve with a lot of not so obvious holds, but check the weather report.
