Routes exist on all sides of the freestanding pinnacle. The classic route takes the southeast side. Excellent photo ops from atop Kings Throne and above the Weissner Face area.
Take the West Bluff Trail to the first point where it comes out of the woods for a great view of the lake. Cleopatra's Needle is clearly visable in the Amphitheater below.
