Description & Descent
End Pinnacle is the at the Northwest end of the Rockfellow group. It has a number of excellent climbs, some of which are bold traditional lines while others are well-protected bolted climbs.
Alternatively, it is possible to rappel the SW face with two ropes. This will require some cord left on the last anchor of Endgame. Also, be sure there is not a party ascending any of the classic lines on the SW face, and beware of getting your ropes stuck. Rappelling Jimmywacky seems with two ropes seems to result in the fewest rope snags.
See this topo to locate anchors down the SW face:
The following link is for a Google Earth file showing the most commonly used approach for End Pinnacle:
From the campground in the East Stronghold, head north on the road approx .2 miles to a trail next to a large boulder in the road. Follow this trail west for approx .5 miles and gaining 1000 feet in elevation. At this point the path passes through a notch and levels off. After another 100 yards the trail forks, turn southwest and head toward the Rockfellow domes (which will be very obvious at this point.) After .2 miles, the trail heads up a short hill and deposits you at the North side of End Pinnacle.

This route starts in the deep cleft just to the right of the slab where Endgame begins, following a line of bolts up a rounded arete festooned with chickenheads and some blank slabby bits.The first two pitches (can be linked with a 70m and possibly with a 60m rope as well) go straight up the blunt, bolted arete punctuated by two-bolt belays with colossal Metolius rap hangers at each. Endgame meets WTTM in an alcove of sorts at the second belay and then veers right; a suggested linkup ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
