Description 

Manhole Cover lies on the south face of the Bookmark Pinnacle, left of Fallout and right of Plan A.The route is easily indentified by the huge chockstone wedged at the top of the corridor....the Manhole Cover.It climbs up the right side of deep recess via a nice fatty hand crack. wiggle up through the slot on the right behind the chockstone and belay.

to descend, squirm through a tunnel to the east, to rap slings above Son of a Pitch.

An obscure yet worthwhile adventure pitch if you are in the area.


Protection 

single rack a 4" piece is nice to have

Justin , I just so happened to be there to witness your epic struggle while attempting to remove the cover from the manhole. I somehow failed to notice the look of enjoyment while you were stuck in that tight hole. You seemed to be in your warm, safe, happy, place. Strong men also cry!!! Strong men, also cry!!!
