One of 10 or so classic high balls in the Park, as well as one of the easiest, this is the first climbable feature you'll see on your left as you enter the real Hidden valley corridor. Refrain from setting a TR and just go for it as the crux is encountered midway while leaving the top is a feeling to be savored and not feared.
Don't expect to send in a quiet setting as foot traffic is heavy here. That's ok though, more people to hoot as you top out!
On a small, east-facing wall 75' west of and facing the Entrance Boulder, and right off the trail leading into Real Hidden Valley.
A pad (more is nicer)

Don't be to intimidated by this one. The crux is lower on the problem leaving you to savor the top.

Some of us might prefer to treat this thing as a route. Leading it with pro would prevent the dreaded grounfall potential as it is OTD. Just because John soloed it on the FA.....after all he soloed Leave It To Beav as well!!!
