Did MI on 1/7/12. Citadel canyon is a beautiful place that sees less play than other west side areas. MI is tall (for a sport pitch), and fairly sustained. Positive holds and great rock by Pinnacles standards. The hangerless bolts (first and third) do have washers on them which seems to make hanging wired nuts on them somewhat okay (why no hangers?). The rap from Peon's delight easily reaches the ground with a 60m rope. Plenty of bolts protect MI; no runnouts to speak of. MI is definitely a CLASSIC Pinnacles sport pitch.
