Description

This is the obvious pinnacle at the base of the cliff. Do it on your way out - it is a fun end to the day (it may involve downclimbing if the slings are missing).

Protection

Thin standard rack.

I did this one with Charles starting out in tennis shoes which I took off for greater friction. We didn't have a rope, but downclimbing was fairly easy. Dec 18, 2001
The standard way described for the pinnacle is to climb up to a notch along the NEside then up the short face to the top. It is possible to make the climb longer and more interesting by starting down and right at the base of the north end. That being said it would be hard to justify the long bushwack for this climb alone, but to combine with Nun Buttress or others would. Sep 26, 2003

Not a hard climb, but certainly harder than 5.4?!? We climbed the slightly left-leaning crack to the top, and I thought it was 5.6. My shorter partner thought harder than that.
The rap anchor on top is an old piece of webbing + a new (added) cord and biner (added). It needs a rapid-link. Aug 16, 2009
