Fuzzy heading up the tooth.

Description 

Stem with an off-finger crack to the pinnacle summit.

Location 

Crack in a V-chimney on the down hill side of the pinnacle.

Protection 

Trad gear and a large sling to lasso the top for a belay. To get down down climb off the back or sling your rope around the top. We got our rope stuck slinging it around the top but I was able to scramble up and fling it off.

I was lost when I first stumbled on this route, and it is one of my favorite finds.

We left a cordelette with rap-ring around the top of this route. Please do not remove it, in fact use it. We will take it down in a couple of weeks.

Never went back to take that cordelette, did you? It's still looking in pretty good shape.
