Pine Creek

Max below Rites of Spring, Pratt's Crack is the big corner to the right...

Max jammin'

Contemplating the chimney...

My gobie

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!!
