The most obvious and popular side-canyon in Pine Creek. This area offers the highest concentration of established quality routes and clean cracks including Chuck Pratt's title offwidth. Other sub-areas found here are the Mustache Wall, Ministry Wall, and the Oser Wall. Route development here has exploded in the last 5 years, and the potential for more is overwhelming.
This is the most common destination for visiting climbers.

Clip 4th bolt and stay focused for a burly awkward layback crack move that requires footwork and balance. Stand up and place a blue TCU/green alien and do a final ea...[more] Browse More Classics in California
