Description 

This is the easiest way to the top of the Pinnacle formation on the west side of Practice Rock. Climb the crack past the low crux to a good ledge. From here continue up the ramp. You can climb right against the main wall, but I prefer the crack system in the middle of the ramp. The last twenty feet or so are the best of the climb. It is a good hand crack to the finish. The top of the Pinnacle is a great spot. A small ledge with air on all sides!


Location 

This climb ascends the south face of the Pinnacle formation, starting from the same ledge as Practice Crack.


Protection 

A standard rack is great for this climb. I like to have an extra #1 BD, and a #4 could be useful depending where you decide to start. There is a bolted anchor with chains at the top. Please put a carabiner through the chains while toproping on this anchor (or any anchor!). They have been seeing some wear from lowering.
