Description

The Pinnacle is just what the name says -- a rock tower overlooking the valley and Lake Weiss below. Most of the climbs here are trad lines; almost all can be set up as topropes by leading a route to the top.

The classic Pinnacle climb is Comfortably Numb, on the south (valley-facing) side. Don't miss this great route!

Getting There

From the parking lot, walk a short distance past boulders to an open area. The Pinnacle is down the hill to the left, just past the Holiday Block.
