Hairy Pin is located slightly downhill to the north of Tent Peg spire. Getting to the top of Hairy Pin is quite an adventure and there is a summit register for those who make it. Some famous names in it, too. The spire sports the famous and exposed Pete Cleveland's route (5.10+). There are chain anchors on top for rappel.
From the pull off by End Pin walk down the road past Superpin and locate a faint trail going downhill to the right. Walk past Superpin, Tent Peg, and the smaller Safety Pin. Hairy Pin sits in the woods roughly 50 yards from the road.
