Pinnacle Rock - From the road. Directly in front ...

Description 

About 25 feet tall, Pinnicle rock has a handful of pocketed face climbs as well as a noticeable crack on the left side, and a strange ramp on the right.

This rock has a large solid metal pole set 15 - 20' behind the main face of the rock, which allows you to use long slings to setup top ropes on the 8 or so climbs (5.6 - 5.11d) on the face. Be sure to bring long slings (~25') to this rock, as the top edge is quite sharp, and you want to ensure that your top anchor sits all the way over the edge to reduce / eliminate rope drag.


Getting There 

Looking at it from the road, Pinnicle rock is the most massive boulder on the left side of the climbing.Since the park is so small, it would be pretty difficult to miss it.

An off-width crack that would pose severe difficulty were it not at such a kind angle.I loved the climb but i don't mind getting dirty. If you do mind getting dirty it may not be worth it....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

This rock is also good for practicing self-rescue techniques like assisted rappels and hauling up an injured second.
