Description Suggest change

The Pit is a south-facing, mostly hidden wall to the west of the Central Pinnacles that rises 50 feet from a jumble of boulders that make entry difficult.

As the name implies, this jumble of boulders forms a pit at the base of the wall. The wall is capped by a pair of short pillars. There are 4 nice routes here on excellent rock but due to its location and hidden access the Pit sees very little action.

Getting There Suggest change

To find the Pit, walk west from Pistol Whipped wall to the 4WD road. Head south to where the road branches out. There are a couple of old water troughs in the ground, to the west of the road. Walk past these troughs and follow the hillside up and to the right (north) to the jumble of boulders. Look for a low cave and climb the blocks directly to the left of the entrance. Scramble up the slabs to the east-facing wall. Scramble up and right along the base of that wall. Crest the ridge and scramble down into the Pit.
