Pinnacles East Rock Climbing
Jochen leading the upper section of Bullish.
This covers the handful of crags to the east of Lost Orbit Rock
, and is the smallest area with the least amount of climbing.
Although on the short side, these crags offer fun and technical climbing in an out-of-the-way area.
Recommended routes in the area:
From the Lost Orbit Rock - East Face
hike east, passing a seasonal stream, and then pick up a well-worn trail heading north. The crags, the largest on the hillside, are readily visible to the right (east). Plan on a 5 minute walk from Lost Orbit Rock, a 10 minute walk from the vicinity of Parking Lot Rock and a 15 minute walk from the upper parking area.

Lots of good steep, technical face climbs in the 5.10 range here - different from Central Pinnacles.
