Sticky situation MORE INFO >>>


Cranner Rock was an important passing/stopping point for pioneer era travelers. Near Cranner was an important Pony Express post as well.
Nowadays it serves as a bare-bones rest-stop with a pit toilet and historical/informative placard.
It's location: northside 287, northwest of 220 junction.

The climbs at Cranner are within easy walking distance (up to 15 minuites) from parking area.
Climbing is mostly short granite cracks (some being extremely short).
Certainly not a destination but if you have a few hours to burn when you're passing, then check 'er out.
Keep a good, clean, low-profile and don't instigate phone calls of complaint from other travelers passing thru.
