Description

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.

Protection

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.

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

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

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
