Bighorn on the way in to Cyanide Gully
Second-best Pine Creek Canyon destination. Gets sun all day, best for cool weather climbing. Beautiful routes; some trad, some sport, some with both. Well worth the effort of navigating the talus.
Same as Pine Creek but 1.1 miles past the Pratts crack gully turnoff. Cross the creek on a beam of wood and head up a road/ramp right then straight up to the obvious sun facing cliffs. 30 min.
Weather station 2.6 miles from here

As of 10/16/2010, the river crossing "beam" is no longer across the river making wet feet the only way to the crag.

Park 1/2 mile before the usual turnout at the creek bridge (per Lambs Canyon). Wander up then left through the pads on faint roads and drainage ramps to the Gully. Keep close to the mountain side.
