BETA PHOTO: This topo is of the very improbable looking route ...
The Wart is a small formation at the southeast section of the Real Hidden Valley. Upon entering RHV, go right on the loop trail for about a 1 minute walk. The crag is visible to ones right, with a bulbously shaped top on dark varnish. It has a couple of TR problems, along with a couple of bolted routes that are all on the west face visible from the trail.
In Real Hidden Valley along the loop trail as approaching Sports Challenge Rock, on the righthand side.

The clean hands start is obviously "the Good".... the middle section could be "the Bad", and for sure the wide above is "the Ugly"! This route is deceptively awkward for the 34" of real climbing it offers. I did it right side in, left side in, and stacked it, and none of them were great... or graceful. There are some tricks to all them methods, but this no place to tell them... get in there and start wiggling. Really good route with one or two interesting moves....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
