Description

This is the mostly East facing slab just up the hill from Crack of Noon Buttress. There are several easy to moderate routes. 'Blue Steel' is excellent.

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. Stay straight/left at the junction, the right path goes to Three Hour Buttress/Lamb Wall. Just before reaching the sand dune do a short scramble up and right. Pass a prominent, angular boulder with a slab behind it (Crack of Noon Buttress) on the right. Easy access, short approach (10-12 minutes).
