Less frequented than the other parts of the Pinnacles, this area is a good place to escape the more crowded crags of the Central Pinnacles. Routes tend to be on huge blocks/boulders with a few exceptions.
Recommended routes in the area:
The road continues west and then southwest passing some old mines on both sides of the road, and then uphill for a section until you reach another parking area near the Vice Wall (park here for the Vice Wall, Double P Wall and The Saloon).
Further along the road heads south and downhill passing a parking area for The Mine Shaft, which sits just past an obvious open mine.
It's about a 10-20 minute walk from the Central Pinnacles depending upon which crag you're visiting; driving will lessen the approach time, but be advised that larger/longer vehicles may have some difficulty in negotiating the narrow, twisting dirt roads of the area; a four wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended.
