Description

This 40' free-standing pinnacle sitting atop Diarrhea Dome is visible from afar and as a natural landmark is helpful to in locating the Dome from the jumble of rock in the Wonderland.

Three routes exist on the formation - South Face Route (aka Owl) (5.8) a grainy crack route on the south side which is the easiest way to the top, Broken Wing (5.10b) a fun face on patina edges and The Talon (5.12c) a short, steep arete with great rock.

Getting There

The easiest and most practical way to approach is to do one of the routes in the Grotto or on the South Face and then make your way to the base of the pinnacle. Otherwise it's a lot of scrambling for some 40' routes, even if they do have great views.
