Getting weather forecast...
The Wedge is (surprise!) a wedge-shaped granite tower approximately 40 feet high located just northeast of Pinnacle Peak proper. It is plainly visible from the main trail against the sky. There are three main face climbing routes found on the Wedge, all of which are pretty good. Expect a bit of runout climbing on all of them. Rappel from bolts located atop the formation.
Hike up the tourist trail from the visitor's center (looks like a big smooth dirt golf cart path). At the sign marking the climber's trail headed for the Peak, turn left and head up. The trail curves back left (south) towards Loafer's Choice Slab and the AMC Boulder, then curves back to the west and uphill. Hike up the trail to the Wedge (stay right) from here.
