Mixed climbing area with one great crack pitch and many sport climbs. Morning-mid afternoon sun keeps this crag warm enough to climb in the winter. Afternoon shade allows climbing in the summer after 4pm.

Getting There 

Approach: Park 0.6 miles past (uphill) Pratt’s Crack Gully (Scheelite)
on Pine Creek Road, to where small a creek crosses road.
Walk on old mining road, to a marked use trail on the left. Continue past The Hour Buttress, following the drainage into Lamb Canyon. A use trail cuts out of the drainage and leads to the right and base of "Moment of Zen" and "Workingman's Arete."
20 minutes.
