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.

This area is THICK with classic lines. Maximum stars. Can get pretty crowded. May 27, 2014
Please consider leaving your dogs at home. Pine Creek is home to bighorn sheep; they are easily stressed by uncontrolled dogs. As am I. If you're bringing a dog climbing, be considerate of other users. Bring a leash. Use it, especially when you're not actively controlling your animal, like when your off the ground, climbing. Digging, wandering, fighting other dogs, defecating all over the canyon, chasing wildlife, distracting climbers. These are all things dogs do, when their owners aren't acting responsibly. Please be a responsible owner/human being! It's appreciated. May 14, 2018
