Per George Bracksieck: The 1st, 2nd and 3rd pinnacles are NOT closed for raptor nesting.
On the S. Face of the First pinnacle, in the amphitheatre proper, there is a left-slanting line of chalked up flakes, edges, seams, and pockets. At just above mid-face the system has a short, left-facing, left-leaning corner, about 10 feet tall.
Climb this system to the top of the corner and then more or less straight upward to the top, where you can belay from fixed anchors.
Descend by scrambling West and then North or by rapping from one of the several fixed anchors up top.
The route is definitely rated S and does have some questionable holds, although these can be avoided with little increase in route difficulty. If you don't normally on-sight solo 5.9, perhaps choose another route to lead and TR this climb.
