The Hideout is a group of small formations directly west of the Shark's Fin in the Alabama Hills. But driving west from the Fin will land you in 4x4 moguls.
These rocks have a nice mix of north-facing and south-facing routes, making the area a good place to fire off a few climbs regardless of season.
From Movie Road, approach as for the Shark's Fin. But almost immediately, take the left-hand fork in the road (Lone Pine Fire Road N1). This will take you along the edge of private property, bypassing the 4x4 moguls near Whitney boulder. 0.5 miles brings you to the Hideout East. 0.7 miles brings you to Hideout West.
The crags are obvious, and located a ways west of the Whitney Boulder and Sharks Fin.

Start up a low angle slab to the right of Booty Pageant. For inexperienced leaders, a #2 camalot-sized cam is recommended to protect the moves to the first bolt. The steep slab move BEFORE getting to the roof is the crux... the rest of the route is just plain fun, as long as you don't fall doing the step-through. Some loose rock and grainy holds can be expected, this is a new 'Bama Hills route. Enjoy....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
