Contemplating the chimney...
Pine Creek Canyon just North of Bishop hides a vast expanse of granite towers and gullies, the premier venue being the Pratt's Crack Gully. Here is the best rock and an awesome setting, 400 ft granite walls above a narrow vegetated slot in the canyon cut by the stream. Max and I climbed 'Rites of Spring', an excellant crack line with four pitches of great jamming! I also re-opened my knee gobie from the 'Cardinal Sin' OW!!
