“Head southwest from the Current Creek Approach to access a handful of fun, lap-able lines at Hidden Knoll.”— Zander Göpfert
From the base, head to the lookers right of the knoll on a faint ridgeline that bends up to the top. This final push is steep but manageable with one to two switchbacks. The top of the knoll is flat, making it hard to see which couloir you're on top of. That said, if you head to the edge, it's easier to tell which is which and having scoped the line from the bottom, you won't have the added uncertainty of getting cliffed out or dropping into the wrong line.
The far end of this ascent stops at a wide open, east-facing bowl, which makes for a fun final line to bend into the drainage back to the Current Creek Trailhead.
