Description 

This is a collection of rock here.

The Pinnacle Wall is a small, 20-25 foot tall crag that faces southwest. It has a decent tree above for a toprope anchor. It lies in the north group of crags and is the southernmost of these crags. Long slings are useful here.

D. Nonstop, 4
E. Inbound, 5
F. Outbound, 5

The pinnacle and Eliminator Roof have a small set problems that are probably no more than 15 feet tall. This is a tiny area with a neat roof problem. While these are short rocks, a toprope is advisable until you have these wired, especially the Eliminator Roof.
