Description 

Classic Pinnacles climbing.

Locate the start, which is the most moderate looking face climbing protected by two lead bolts. The route takes a sharp right, pass another bolt, and turn the steep corner into a belay stance. Fun pitch, with great position.

Ramble up the short and easier second pitch, clipping a couple bolts, enroute to the summit plateau. Anchor is located on the NE corner of the summit boulder.


Location 

Located near the right end of the east face of the Monolith. Walk over to the summit boulder and rappel back to the base from the anchor on the SE side of the boulder (rap lines kinda goes down the direct route). Single 60m rope.


Protection 

Three lead bolts on the first pitch to a bolted anchor. Pass two bolts on the second pitch to the summit, which has a bolted anchor.

I seem to recall placing a cam or two so maybe a few nuts and cams makes sense for supplemental pro for this route. Otherwise, its fairly head's up climbing with well spaced protected.

Brought gear (cams), but didn't use it. Draws / slings probably sufficient for most folks.

At the top, climb the boulder and find a surprise at the top of it.

The starting moves to the first bolt are really good (5.8). The rest of the climb isn't anything special. I brought supplemental pro, but didn't place anything.
