Overview of Pine Creek's main climbing areas with ...

Description 

The most obvious and popular side-canyon in Pine Creek. This area offers the highest concentration of established quality routes and clean cracks including Chuck Pratt's title offwidth. Other sub-areas found here are the Mustache Wall, Ministry Wall, and the Oser Wall. Route development here has exploded in the last 5 years, and the potential for more is overwhelming.

This is the most common destination for visiting climbers.


Getting There 

Turn right off Pine Creek Rd. after 7.7 miles onto a dirt road across from the campground. The road forks immediately- take the right side and drive up a couple hundred yards to the parking area. Hike into the canyon.

From the 2 bolt belay, traverse a thin face for 3 bolts - the traverse gets tougher as you go. Then head up the nice clean arete. Like the traverse, the arete gets progressively harder, with the crux coming on off-vertical thin moves near the top.Feels rewarding....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
