Description 

This is an excellent sport climb with high quality rock, sequential and interesting cruxes, and good protection. There are three cruxes which all felt like at least 5.10+, and they all come below the first anchor on the climb. The true crux is probably the first move, and is a little intimidating since you're so close to the ground, but the bolt is well-placed. The upper section above the first anchor is fun and airy, and I recommend climbing the whole thing in one long pitch (at least the first time you do it).


Location 

Dragnet is the longest bolted route on the Pinnacle. It is located just left of Tiger Snap, and is the second route to the right of the Army Route.

There are two 2-bolt anchors. The first is about 100' up, and I'm pretty sure a 60m single rope would reach (although we had a 70m, so be careful). The second anchor is another 50 feet above this. So either descend via 2 rappels with a single 60m or longer, or drag a 2nd rope, and do one rappel from the top anchor.


Protection 

14 quickdraws to do it in one long pitch. If breaking it into two pitches or only climbing the first pitch, 10 quickdraws should suffice.

Thanks Bob! I'll update the description, too.

great route! There are definitely at least two major cruxes, one right off the ground and one at the very top.
