starting the crux pitch four.


This is a very direct variant to the pinnacle rock climb, it follows the arete direct from the first chimney pitch of pinnacle ridge, the route finding is simple follow the ridge/arete proper and a good amount of fixed pins on the way. The crux comes at a tricky roof to a step around the arete (extremely exposed, you can see pinnacle waterfall at about 250' down) to a vertical seam protected by brassies and a ring pin.


the pinnacle, huntington ravine. follow the ridge/arete proper to the top and walk off down huntington ravine or traverse over to lions head trail.


single rack to a number 4 camalot, 1 set of nuts and micro nuts.
