Description

This gigantic boulder has one established route. Lying beside the BAW path in the talus slope just south of the Isobuttress, it is a scenic place to relax, watch climbers on Carpenter & Das' upper pitch, or observe vultures, hawks, falcons, and occasional eagles ride the thermals.
While there is room for 1 or 2 more routes on this block, it looks pretty close to impossible to start from anywhere but this route's bottom. The slab on the left has been soloed, but isn't worth describing. To the right, the base of the block is overhanging and featureless.

Getting There

Take the BAW path east along the mountain's base, up past the Measles Walls, Height-of-Land Wall, Land of Overhangs, TeePee Wall, and Long Play Wall. The path turns just below the LPW, entering a rockslide/talus area. Pinnacle Overlook is the obvious, large promontory on the downhill side of the path in the middle of this area. If you reach the Isobuttress, you missed it.
