An unknown party on the first pitch of 'PSOM Pinna...
The old Palisade School of Mountaineering (PSOM) training ground for clients, this route has a bit of mountaineering in it, some wandering and meandering, and a stellar lie-back finish to a small summit.
P-1: crack to slab (little bit run-out).
P-2: Bulgy crack then 3rd class through the brush to the right.
P-3: left-facing dihedral to the top of the pinnacle.
Gear to 2"
Fun climbing up the left side of PSOM Pinnacle.

Of historical note: John Fischer climbed this shortly after being bit by a rattlesnake on the approach. Didn't want to disappoint his clients enrolled in a beginner mountaineering course in the PSOM. But was forced to go to the hospital later that evening.

P3- one of the greatest single pitches of climbing I've done.
P2- one of the worst.
