Great warmup.

Emergency Closure Announced - Resurrection Wall MORE INFO >>>


Lower-angled water streak with smooth features. Kind of like Tuolumne slab climbing -- bolts are sparsely placed. Crux is above fourth bolt.


Follow the Balconies trail from the westside parking lot and cross about five footbridges. Just before the sixth, there will be a climber access sign for the 'Destiny Wall' (Destiny is another name for this route). Turn right and head up a climber's trail. There is a fallen old gray pine near the base which makes a convenient bench.

Descend by rappel.


Four bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

An "R" rating? I didn't think it was that run-out. Well protected by Pinnacles standards.

Not "R", PG-13 MAYBE. Solid rock, great stemming, fun warm-up. I agree with Chinos, crux was above last bolt, adding a little spice!
