Pinnacle Peak proper is the home of some of the best granite routes in the Phenix area. Some of the face routes up on the Peak stand as a testament to the mindblowing footwork of the hard dudes of early Phoenix climbing.
Location is pretty obvious from the Visitor's Center for Pinnacle Peak Park. Take the main golf-cart path up to the first climber's trail (sign), then head up, left past Loafer's Choice and the AMC Boulder, and continue following the markers up to the Peak itself.

The climb to the left of fear of flying. This is a demanding route with tedious footwork and very thin face moves. The start of this climb is 11a and moves up on small arete. From there climb past 3 bolts i beleive and then work your way right to a crack where you can then put in a orange alien or a .4 BD camalot. Climb up past more bolts to small roof, last 3 bolts are cruxy. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
