Deception Pinnacle Rock Climbing
A fairly non-descript mass. Certainly not as slender as it's neighboring spires. Two routes can be found on this formation. Summit easily reached from N side.
Directly behind (NW of) the Twin Pins as viewed from the road. Very short hike, approach from the SW gully.
Weather station 5.5 miles from here
