Comments: Sweet route. First pitch felt like 10c "r" to me, and pumpy. Second pitch felt like 10a, not runnout, not pumpy, but with very cool exposure. Be sure to sling bolt #6 on pitch two or face big time rope drag. There is a fixed nut after bolt #6 (pitch 2) as of yesterday (3/7/14) that that comes in handy. Definitely primo Pinnacles stuff here.

Comments: Hey j moore, good on you. Connecting Rusy's to poor mans p and bypassing the poor mans p anchors makes for a great pitch.

Shall I take down the page, change the fa info to you and leave the page, or something else? Thanks, DD

Comments: I agree with Bryan's comments. Climbed it yesterday, 8/14/13 with Allan Weidner. DEFINITELY AN OBSCURE GEM. Heaps of really cool stemming with a bit of chimneying, laybacking, and jamming thrown in. The layback moves on the third pitch are killer bee. A few thoughts: On the approach, be sure to traverse all the way around the base of the phantom pinnacle formation and then approach the base of the climb from the uphill side. Take a copy of Bryan's route photo. Approach is a bushwhack, no d... more >>

Comments: Did MI on 1/7/12. Citadel canyon is a beautiful place that sees less play than other west side areas. MI is tall (for a sport pitch), and fairly sustained. Positive holds and great rock by Pinnacles standards. The hangerless bolts (first and third) do have washers on them which seems to make hanging wired nuts on them somewhat okay (why no hangers?). The rap from Peon's delight easily reaches the ground with a 60m rope. Plenty of bolts protect MI; no runnouts to speak of. MI is ... more >>
