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.

Getting There 

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.

From here, lieback up the left facing flake/crack (5.7/5.8) until you can move right into the seam. Stem up the flared double seams (sustained 10a and BD C3's are nice to have here) until you're under the roof. Clip the first bolt and pull the roof (10a). Then, trend up and right across the face (5.9/10a) clipping the second bolt as you go. Finish up the...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

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.
