Description

The rock in Pine Creek is the same as the Black Canyon only on a smaller scale. And like the black the routes at Pine Creek are mostly trad lines. There are very few climbers ever climbing at Pine Creek, so it's a nice get away from the crowded crags. The routes are on both sides of the road so depending on the time of day you can be in the sun or shade. The fall is by far the best time to climb here, but the spring and summer also offer great climbing. The routes that have been done here have had Jimmy Newberry on the rope almost every time. He has been key in development of this small crag. With Gunnison only a few miles away, everything you need is just down the road i.e. food, gas, camping, beer....

Getting There

Pine Creek is only a few minutes out of Gunnison heading west on US Highway 50. Just past the CO Highway 92 turn off. It is on the north side of the road at a well marked turn off "Pine Creek". The climbs are a short way down the road on both the west side and the east side of the crag. The approach is only a minute or two from the parking on the sides of the road.
