West Ironing Board
Per George Bracksieck: The 1st, 2nd and 3rd pinnacles are NOT closed for raptor nesting.
Approach the lower broken section of the ridge from the West and scramble up some 50 feet until the ridge is better defined.
P1- Climb up the ridge on easy but brittle and licheny ramps. After some 30-50 feet place your last piece for a while and traverse left unto the East face. Delicate face climbing among the lichen will put put you on a broken ledge. Traverse left and up and belay at a small tree with a nice hand crack on the back.
P2 - Traverse left and up to a large narrowing slot and move up to the top of the ridge. Run up the ridge.
From here, the top of the ridge is broken and undefined. You can unrope and follow it to a pinpoint summit after a bit of hiking. You can hike South from here to reach the Amphitheater or Saddle Rock trail.
