Follow the crack in the left facing corner. Half way up the second pitch follow the crack up out of the corner, as the corner curves right. Continue up the crack to the shoulder of Cardinal Pinnacle.
Begin at the base of the huge left facing book on the right side of the crag.

Couldn't you put just a *little* more effort into this? Think of it as like 10 photo comments. Something like pitch lengths, where the belays are, how to get down, maybe an identifying feature or something?

Walk down the scree around to the right of the crag.....did you mean something like this, as the description for Cucumbers?

Approach the pinnacle up the boulders and talus heading toward the start of the west face. Walk right up a 3rd class ramp to a big ledge at the corner of where the small peak on the right connects to the main feature.
Tie in below some big blocks with rap slings on them maybe 30 feet above. Climb easy terrain up to a second big sandy ledge where the dihedral gets more defined. 5.5, gear anchor
The second pitch puts you at the saddle between the main pinnacle and the small right peak. Lots of big blocks, many are loose. 5.6, belay at rap slings
The 3rd optional pitch is a short super fun crack at which point we walked to the main rap off the back and skree surfed to climbers right then back to the car. 5.5, gear anchor. wished it was longer.
Standard rack, dont skimp on slings.
50% of the climb is awesome.
