This is the east pillar of the twin pillars of Hope and Despair. The East face is about 40' high and features two very nice, pumpy 5.10's: Rise and Devour and Dismembered. The south-facing arete starts on lower ground, allowing for the lengthier Brewser (5.9). There are a couple more climbs on the west face, in the corridor between the pillars. The rock is solid with a good bite for the shoes on account of the coarse grain.
Approach as for the Cemetery/Pillar of Despair. The Pillar of Hope lies directly to the east of the Pillar of Pain, and southwest of the Gate Keeper.

Climb vertical edges up to a bulge at the 2nd bolt (crux) which is quickly passed on good holds, rest if needed on the vertical face and then punch it up the overhanging finish on mostly incut jugs.Short but fun and although rated 5.10b/c in the guidebook seems easier than the route just to the left which is rated easier....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
