Description & Descent

End Pinnacle is the at the Northwest end of the Rockfellow group. It has a number of excellent climbs, some of which are bold traditional lines while others are well-protected bolted climbs.

DESCENT: From the summit of End Pinnacle, there are at least two means for descent:

The most frequently used (and most interesting) descent is to walk NNE from the summit to the rappels. You will head downhill on some slightly exposed terrain about 100' to a large bowl about 30' in diameter. Enter the bowl and walk to its SE side. There is a crack here. Up and out of the bowl there is a tree next to this crack, the first rappel anchor is next to the tree. It's exposed, so stay roped up when moving to it.

Rap 90' from the tree to an anchor about 20' left of the direct line.
Rap 60' to a three bolt anchor.
Rap 60' to the notch.
Scramble down the ramp until you reach a third anchor (on your right if you are facing downhill).
Rap 90' to a level spot.
Scramble across an exposed move to the horizontal passage leading to the face and another rap anchor (do not continue further down into the cave).
Rap 100' to the ground on the north side of End Pinnacle.
  • **Although this descent is possible with a single 60 meter rope, it is strongly advised that you have a second rope for all climbs on End Pinnacle***

Alternatively, it is possible to rappel the SW face with two ropes. Beware of getting your ropes stuck. Rappelling Magnus Veritas seems to result in the fewest rope snags.

Getting There

From the campground in the East Stronghold, head north on the road approx .2 miles to a trail next to a large boulder in the road. Follow this trail west for approx .5 miles and gaining 1000 feet in elevation. At this point the path passes through a notch and levels off. After another 100 yards the trail forks, turn southwest and head toward the Rockfellow domes (which will be very obvious at this point.) After .2 miles, the trail heads up a short hill and deposits you at the North side of End Pinnacle.
