Overview of Pine Creek's main climbing areas with ...
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.
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.
Weather station 2.5 miles from here

Ridicu-classic and surprisingly secure.A long and beautiful offwidth in a giant clean-cut dihedral. This is one of the most obvious lines in the canyon. If you're up for a good grovel then hop on. During colder months, hit this early in the morning as it dips into the shade around noon, maybe earlier. In fact you may not see it at all. Tends to be a windy canyon. Two 60 meter ropes to rappel. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
