This tall, semi-hidden face sits just outside the perimeter of the campground proper which makes it easily accessible and also gives it a surprsingly secluded feel.
Walk to the northern apex of the front campground loop (passing the route Hands Off) and then cut east along the south side of Outhouse Rock through a rocky "notch" which has some remnants of old fencing visible. Make a left (heading north) and you're there. It's about a 5-10 minute walk from the bulletin board in Hidden Valley CG.
