Fun sport climbing on good (by Pinnacles standards) quality rock. The pump is more likely to get you than the diffuculty of the moves. Difficulty and steepness eases back up high.


Young's guide (brown cover) describes the approach well. Deviating from these instructions is risky and will most likely involve epic bush whacking. "Get a Grip" is pretty far out there but combine it with a few routes on the hand (neighboring formation) for a fun trip. Note: We climbed a route adjacent to Get a Grip called Pinch Grip (5.10aR) and found the upper part to be more like R/X on very bad rock.

Dave, this looks like fun! I look forward to getting out to the Hand and the Frog with you next year. You can lead all the scary and dangerous routes. Thanks for the post! John
