The iconic "Pinhead" is just over the first roof's lip.

The next crack to the right is 5.11 with a pin and shinny bolt that joins Pinhead at the second roof and goes right at a bolt onto the sharp sunlit arete above past two more bolts and the Sorcerer's true summit. Best to start on Sleight of Hand instead of traversing in from Pinhead.

The right crack that starts in the left facing dihedral is Slight of Hand 5.10a. It heads up into the large shaded left facing dihedral to the top, a very cool route as well.

Pinhead looks like such a fat crack in this picture, versus up close, when you actually try to cram your tips into it while fishing in a crappy nut and tearing off your pinky fingernails :-)

Exhilarating climbing for sure. Thank you for the beta on the adjacent climbs as well.

The 5.11 just right of Pinhead I believe is called Shaman Skyway FA: Mike Roberts established some time before 2003.

Pinhead climbs the thin crack on the left through the lower roof and directly up to the higher roof, passing a small bush.
