Description [Edit]

Second-best Pine Creek Canyon destination. Gets sun all day, best for cool weather climbing. Beautiful routes; some trad, some sport, some with both. Well worth the effort of navigating the talus.

Getting There [Edit]

Same as Pine Creek but 1.1 miles past the Pratts crack gully turnoff. Cross the creek on a beam of wood and head up a road/ramp right then straight up to the obvious sun facing cliffs. 30 min.

As of 10/16/2010, the river crossing "beam" is no longer across the river making wet feet the only way to the crag. Oct 16, 2010

Park 1/2 mile before the usual turnout at the creek bridge (per Lambs Canyon). Wander up then left through the pads on faint roads and drainage ramps to the Gully. Keep close to the mountain side. May 21, 2012

as of may '15 the bridge is back! park at either of the original turnouts and walk 50m downstream following cairns to the new bridge built from a salvaged pallet from the construction of the Mountain Rambler Brewery. Its pretty jenky but enjoy it while it lasts. trail improvments to the approach as well. look for cairns.. Jun 6, 2015
