Actually the secret has been out for quite some time and Secret Valley is starting
to become popular for those who know where it is.
The Amphitheater is the first area you will pass as you travel towards
the valley and the other climbing areas.
As you travel down the valley, Assassination Wall is to your right.
Located on the left-hand side of the valley Crag X faces into the sun
all day long and is home to a few multi-pitch climbs. Take some cord to
backup the chains unless you want to abseil off a single bolt and chain.
About 500m past Crag X on the left-hand side of the river are Echo Cliffs. Go
stand on or beside the rock located in front of the concave rock, the
acoustics are amazing (can you hear the water).
At the end of the valley is Surrealist Wall with plenty of moderately
If you travel over the hill to the left of Surrealist Wall and down
into the next valley you will approach The Castle.
Turn right as you approach Surrealist Wall and you will enter the Ravine
with its south facing cliffs. While a little damp in the winter, the Ravine
is a nice cool place to climb on those hot summer days.
About half-way along the Ravine there is a gap in the rock with a track which leads
up to the Cosmic Wall area. This area sports a clean flat face and Little
Lost Arrow Spire.
