Description Suggest change

The large, clean buttress on the NE side of the canyon. Good quality granite needing minimal cleaning on the faces, but the unclimbed cracks will be dirty. Faces SW and has shade only in the morning. Beautiful lines abound.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up Pratt's Crack Canyon proper, passing the Gecko wall and continuing up a hill on a well constructed trail. Crest the hill and then look across the river. A huge, clean SW facing buttress is what you should see! To reach the base, cross the river directly across from a cave w/ bolts. Head up talus and then up 3rd class ledges (30ft) to reach the belay of Blindspot. Otherwise, break out some gear and bolts and make some history! 15-20 from car.
