The tower is indeed called PCP pinnacle, but the route in the picture is actually called "Angel Dust". John Rosholt and I put up this route in the later half of the Seventies. I would consider this a must do Taylor Canyon route of high quality. Just remember the routes on the east side of the Taylor River are invariably looser than the climbs on the west side. So be careful out there. Jan 17, 2004
