Ridicu-classic and surprisingly secure.

A long and beautiful offwidth in a giant clean-cut dihedral. This is one of the most obvious lines in the canyon. If you're up for a good grovel then hop on.

During colder months, hit this early in the morning as it dips into the shade around noon, maybe earlier. In fact you may not see it at all. Tends to be a windy canyon. Two 60 meter ropes to rappel.


You can see the route from the road on the left side of the two giant dihedrals. "Pratt's" splits the classic white Sierra granite on the right and the dark patina wall on the left. Hard to miss!


Gear to 10", small TCU's useful deep in the secondary crack, BIG camalots and friends (#6), up to blue big bro (but not necessary), and chockstones. Mussy hooks at the anchor.
