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.

Silverback Extension 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Cyanide Gully
3 pitch extension to "One of bishops best sport pitches"p1. climb the Silverback, .12a bolts 30mp2. 5.9 gear 25m. Not classic, it just gets ya up there, so hold the judgments.. Traverse left on the ledge, pull a short hand crack roof and continue up blocky corner and out right over a bush to a two bolt stance. Theres a few loose looking blocks around here to watch out for but I have yarded on them all with a crow bar and removed what I could..Bring/tag a 1,2,3 and a finger piece or two for this...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

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.

as of may '15 the bridge is back! park at either of the original turnouts and walk 50m downstream following cairns to the new bridge built from a salvaged pallet from the construction of the Mountain Rambler Brewery. Its pretty jenky but enjoy it while it lasts. trail improvments to the approach as well. look for cairns..
