Peewee is the squat, somewhat unattractive formation across from the entrance to Hidden Valley Campground (HVCG) and just across from the much larger Cyclops Rock.
Despite it's close proximity to HVCG it doesn't see much traffic, as most of the routes here are at best forgotten. Two exceptions are Peewee's Piton (5.10a) and The Oui-Oui (5.10c) which climb featured face along the right side of the north face. Additionally some bouldering is found along the base with Key Largo (v2) and Chip Flakey (v4) being two notable problems located at the base of the northwest face.
The best approach is from the paved road that leads to the Echo Rock Area. Parking is available almost directly across from the Hidden Valley Campground entrance, and a short hike along a trail leads to the formation. Plan on 3-5 minutes for the approach.

This fun route is on the north face of Peewee Rock, 10 feet right of Peewee's Piton (5.10a). Climb the vertical ribs past two bolts, where one must do a liebackish lock off, and stab with the left hand to a bomber hold to the left and gain a ledge. From here one more bolt protects a 10- move veering left to the shared anchors of Peewee's Piton....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

What is the new route (5 bolts, two pins) on PeeWee Rock to the left of The Wee-Wee? I though the drilled angle was a bit funny for granite but the route was good especially the shade. The Wee-Wee to the right is fine for a toprope but the old bolts (buttonheads w SMC hangers) do not inspire confid

The route left of The Oui-Oui is called Pee Wee's Piton (5.9+)** and is well protected and fun. The route has actually been there for several years (it is in the newest HVCG Bartlett guide) but isn't well known.
