Description 

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.

Head up a dihedral with a good number of well weathered vertical and horizontal flakes (5.6). Belay on a ledge at a bolted anchor shared with "Africa Flake" or pass the belay and continue up the corner with great hand jams and stemming. When you reach a slanted blocky ledge, (belay here with gear if you skipped the bolted belay) climb the crack system to your left (5.9). Belay at a bolted anchor. There is supposed to be a third 5.7 pitch but I have yet to do it.Two rappels with a single rope fro...[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.
