Description 

This is the side facing into the campground and is home to a number of quality routes from 5.7 to 5.12a, and even includes an aid route for those so inclined.

Some of the recommended routes on this side of the rock include Toe Jam (5.7), Geronimo (5.7), Bearded Cabbage (5.10c) and Spider Line (5.11d).

Descent from this side of the rock is made from bolted anchors atop (listed l-r) Bearded Cabbage, Spider Line and Deviate.

As soon as you step off the ground the fun starts on this one. The crux comes in the first 15', reaching to get established in the corner proper after which it's steep, fun jamming/laybacking to the top where a quick step left gains a ledge with bolted anchors. Yet another classic crack climb of the Hidden Valley Area - 4 stars out of five. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
