This is the most obvious sector in the 'Pratt's Crack Gulley'. Look for the two giant dihedrals of immaculate white granite side-by-side, jutting out into the canyon. Each corner and arete offers classics of varying styles.
You really shouldn't have any trouble finding this area as it is visible from the road. Left side of the canyon, just past the 'Ministry Wall'.

I once saw a cool film in which some California old-timer hard-man was climbing Pratt's Crack while his son, a pretty well-accomplished "modern" climber, was climbing Ecstacy at the same time. They were talking to each other and having a great time. I remember in particular the dad slinging a chockstone in the crack talking about how bomber it was while his son was clipping a bolt saying how he felt a little better about his bomber piece. Wish I could remember the film or who those folks were. Anybody know? Maybe Pratt himself?

Had to be T.M. Herbert on Pratts and his son Tom (don't call me Tommy) Herbert on Ecstasy. I believe Tommy did the FA of Ecstasy. No idea what the movie was called, but if I had to guess in a Jeopardy way, I'd say "what is Moving Over Stone" for 400 Alex.

Close, but...the film was "Moving Over Stone II". The sequel focused more on the evolving discipline of Sport Climbing, and the differences between Sport & Trad. Hence the nice juxtaposition of these two routes, so close, yet so different....
