Description

This isolated crag hosts a few overlooked jewels of the Red including Quality Crack, and the infamous Wide Pride.

Getting There

From the Purple Valley parking area cross the collapsed bridge and continue on the well-worn horse trail as it crosses the stream twice. After the second crossing stay with the stream until you see the tributary Amos Creek on the left. Cross the stream and head up the steep hill to the right of Amos Creek, you will soon pass a limestone outcropping. When you see The Lost Ridge look for the obvious splitter crack (Quality Crack) just to the right of a bolt line (The Poacher).

Wide Pride Approach: From the Purple Valley parking area cross the collapsed bridge and continue up the well-worn horse trail for ten minutes as it crosses back-and-forth over the stream. after the fourth crossing begin looking for a cairn on the left. From here, turn left and cross the stream once more forging uphill. Once you meet the crag follow it to the right. Hike with wall until you come to a sharp left turn with an outlying boulder. Rounding the corner you will see Wide Pride.
