This route might be best approached as a headpoint, and possibly with a few crashpads. The landing is littered with boulders and the first piece of gear is placed after the crux. Begin (refer to location). The climbing starts off with feet on a low angled section of white/brown rock and hands on the steeper section of undercut blocky rock above. Climb rightward through varnished crimps angling for a "pod," in the middle of a seam feature. From this "pod," follow the seam and flake as they wander slightly left and ultimately disappear into lower angled white rock. Continue up easy but unprotected slab until you top out on the formation and can build an anchor (refer to location). Place gear where you can on this route because it is sparse.
"Gonzo," is 35ft. to climber's left of "Little Red." Begin just right of the boulder choked section of the path, under the overhanging brown varnished wall, and a racquetball sized human nose feature. At the top of the climb where the ground levels off, locate a vertical slot to the climber's left in which a #2,3, & 4 Camalot can be placed to build an anchor. Walk off to the southeast as described in the other Hidden Corridor postings.
Single rack to #4 Camalot. Triple finger size cams. RP's. Save #'s 2,3, & 4 Camalots for the anchor.
The setting at this area is gorgeous.
