The left-most climb that faces the road on Pinnacle Rock. Lots of large holds on a steep broad arete. Much more exciting beginner climb than a slab.


There is a old (but sturdy!) metal pole sticking out of the top of the Pinnacle, from which, you can set up a top rope for most of the routes on the rock. Bring a long sling because the top is not steep at all.

For a 5.6 this route is a great workout, and it makes for an excellent warmup prior to bouldering or top-roping. This is a great 5.6 route. Period.

Brian mentioned a long sling for this route, I think 25' will suffice. Oct 19, 2002

for sure I use 25 foot slings. Good for warming up the fingers, and a good route for first timers. Jun 5, 2010

When you say 25' sling, do you mean a 25' loop (covering 12') made from webbing? I've never seen 25' slings for sale.

Thanks :D Jun 14, 2015

Awesome route to take first time climbers. Like mentioned before, the anchors are about 20 feet back from the top of this climb. May 20, 2018

New shiny bolts for this route, much closer to the edge. No need to bring the 25 foot slings. Thank you to whoever re-bolted this! Jul 11, 2018
