P1: Chimney up the impossible to protect section to anchor placed prefectly to haul your clients up with a 3 to 1 plus 1. Have your clients sit behind you on the huge ledge still on cowtail belay. 45'
P2: Solo the short face to Bolted anchor, again set up for a haul if need-be. 20'
P3: Mantle, and solo the exposed right face to the summit, find th anchor bolts, extend your anchor and belay up your seconds and enjoy the view(and you tips!).
Lower: Pair of bolts on north side provide double rope rappel. Akwardly placed (not my favorite, but thanks anyway Jim Taylor)
East side of Pinnacle (away from raod)
Start in the corner in the chimney, go left on big ledge to 20' 2nd pitch then up and right for 40' last pitch.
Lacking, see pitch descriptions
The off width wasn't so bad and protected halfway ...
The view of the gorge.

The summit is one of the best place in WV to drink a beer and watch the sun set!

Single 60 gets you down. Bumping a green big bro for the first pitch makes this a R/PG-13 route. A piece or two on the second pitch, traversing from right to left further avoids any R/X climbing, and keeps the grade at 5.5-6ish.
