Son of a Pitch is on the Bookmark Pinnacle between Crack of No Return and East Side.

This is a fun but funky pitch which includes flared pods that make George's Tree look like a desert splitter. Take a thin crack off the ground and face climb past the new bolt to more pods and face.

Rap 80 feet off some old webbing. It would nice if someone replaced or added some webbing to this old stuff.


Bring a varied rack from RPs to a #4 Camalot. There is one bolt about 50 feet up which has been replaced with a new 3/8" x 2 1/2" Rawl(thanks to the ASCA).
