Definitely a pinnacle worth standing on top of! Fun, but short second pitch is worth the simple trad first pitch. A bit of loose stuff, but it'll clean up quickly if more people climb it. Note to self is to bring chains and quick links to replace the worn webbing on the 2 bolt anchor that's on top. Would also be worth adding quick links and biners to the 1st pitch anchor (that's placed vertically, but only has webbing and a rap ring now).

P1 is fun but easy 5.7 climbing and P2 is short 5.10 face climbing with a few exposed moves as the route corkscrews up the pinicle. The top of the pinnacle is pretty small and very cool to top out on. My partner replaced the webbing/rap rings at the P1 belay with quick links. P2 belay webbing is in good shape but chains would be a nice addition.

The webbing was shot at top of p1. Didn't read my note to self and so didn't bring chain for the top. Still in need. Webbing and cord have another couple months or so left in them so we didn't replace.

70 m rope gets you down from the top.
