This narrow formation has some nice, fun trad routes (all short), and a couple of toprope jobs. If you are not a solid moderate leader a 5.2, either soloed or led, can take you to the top rope climbs. Or use the ramp on the east side. Legal Briefs (5.9), Burn Out (5.10b), Good Grief (5.10c R) and Brief Case (5.10c) are some of the routes to check out here.

Getting There 

This extremely narrow wall with several large summit blocks is approximately 100' east of Hidden Tower. The east face has a ramp system that provides the easiest descent (pg 158 Vogel guide). You can either hike over from the main Park Road or from the Real Hidden Valley parking area. The last turn off before the Real Hidden Valley entrance is the ticket.
