Description

Southeast facing crag in the upper reaches of Pine Creek Canyon. Excellent winter sun. Fun, short routes on good quality rock. Mix of trad and sport climbs.

See Crack of Noon Topo pic in the Photo section for a detailed overview.

Getting There

Drive approx. a quarter mile past the Pratt's Crack turn-off on Pine Creek Rd. and park in a small dirt/gravel turn out on the Northwest side of the road. If you've reached the creek crossing (metal barriers), you've gone about a hundred yards too far. From the turn out follow a Southwest trending dirt road/path toward the sand dune ahead. Just before reaching the sand dune do a short scramble up and right toward a prominent, angular boulder with a slab behind it. Easy access, short approach (8-10 minutes).
