About Lower-Upper Hidden:

Local training crag, also very convenient to toprope. Short but surprisingly pumpy leads/tr's on great stone. Many of the classic routes at upper hidden were first developed by Eddie Begoon, Mike Artz, and Kris Kline in the early to mid 80's. Dean Metzler, Mitch Congdon, Keith Filter, and Paul Sullivan uncovered lower hidden from under the lichen in the late 80's, putting up the classic short leads Snowblower, Rainy Day Woman, etc.

While there is some bouldering along the Lower and Upper Hidden Cracks Walls, there is much more, of higher quality, further up the hollow (about 250 yds).

Inquire at Wilderness Voyagers in Harrisonburg for directions/guidebook (Lester Zook's Climber's Guide To Rockingham County). An enchanted crag!
