Final move on Pinpoint Pinnacle...stand and balanc...


This group of rocks would be considered off the beaten path, the approach long by local standards. These are the rock people see in the distance when climbing not the ones they are climbing on. So if you want to beat the crowds for a day it is worth the short hike of about half an hour.

Getting There 

To find Pinpoint Pinnacle park at the Little Devils Tower Parking lot east of Sylvan Lake. Hike out of the lot on the road and head east up the Hwy. There is a trail on the right with in 100’ feet follow this trail mostly south until it bears west, you will have passed near The Fist along the way. Cut left off the trail and head south you will come to Pinpoint Pinnacle first.

South of Pinpoint is The Prince and The Pauper west and down hill is Finial farther down the hill south is Loeber’s Leap.

As you walk down the hill look for the anchor for pitch one. Then locate the first bolt; the original start is 25’ right of the bolt. Do an easy boulder move and then move left on the big ledge until you can get to a crack on the right side of a V-shaped horn. Get gear and move up to the first bolt. The climbing is 5.8 and easier for several bolts. At the fourth bolt I moved right (5.10b) and then up to a shallow groove with a small crack (5.9). Follow this and one more like it to the...[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
