This is the pinnacle just Southeast below Horse Head located on the ridge line. From the approach to Horse Head, you can see the striking finger cracks that make up two of the three climbs this formation has to offer.

I looked at these lines a couple years ago. They look good. I never got a partner to go climb them though. There are several ather routes near this that I'll be climbing soon if no one gets there first.

Well it's not like there's not 100s of others out there to do like these. I keep getting surprised with every corner I look around. In the meantime, give these a burn and let us know what you think of the ratings.
