Hi y'all

I'm heading to pinnacles this weekend to do the feather canyon route on high peaks. I did it once before and approached from the east side but don't remember how long it took. I'm wondering if anyone knows stats about how long it takes from the east side and can give me some clues of how to get there.

In peace

MP beta says 2.5 miles amd 1.5 hours approach from West side. Looking at the map, I would guess that East side approach is similar.

1.5 hr approach, 9 moderate sport pitches, 1- 1.5 hr desent - Take your headlamps!

I have not done the climb, but the high peaks trail alone is very cool.
