This is the easiest way to the summit of the Second Pinnacle, and is a good downclimb.

The Second Pinnacle is the summit to the south of the West Bench. The West Bench is between the First and Second Pinnacles. The Second Pinnacle has two summits, the East Summit being the higher.

The Northwest Corner route begins at the bottom of an obvious chimney system on the -surprise- NW corner of the 2nd Pinnacle. The first move or two constitutes the crux, after which things are 4th class at the hardest. Follow the system to the notch between the two summits of the Second Pinnacle. From here, continue on to the higher east summit via some chimney moves and face climbing.

To descend, reverse the above directions.
