This is the large formation about 100 yards southeast of the Brown Wall and 50 yards east of the nature trail. The routes are to be found on the southwest side and, therefore, are in the sun most of the day. The rock is reasonably firm with some spots a bit grainy. All known routes, at this time, are traditional and one pitch. Rappelling requires two 60 meter ropes or one seventy meter. The walk off is to the northwest. Work around the summit boulders until you come to a shute that drops off steeply to the left and down toward a tree.
Enter Real Hidden Valley and take the trail to the left that circles the valley. Circle around until you pass by the trail the exits the valley north. At that point, you will be facing The Great Burrito to your east. There is a small formation in front of it. Approach to your right around the minor formation. There is a large, vertical, whitetish cleft in the formation with yuccas at its base.
