Per George Bracksieck: The 1st, 2nd and 3rd pinnacles are NOT closed for raptor nesting.
Climb the East bench Dihedral to reach the slot between the first pinacle and the East bench and then move as far right as possible between the East Bench and the First Pinacle. Alternatively, start from the North side in the NE Chimney. In either case, continue to move way out right until you have passed below a 3 meter tall juniper, then move up into a bomb-bay inset, and up into the left side of this and past the tree's right side, into the next crack right of the tree, following this to the top.
It's a so-so pitch, and the traverse is seldom done and not as clean as it's neighbors to the left. It's not great for the beginning 5.6 leader or follower.
Descend by scrambling West and then North or by rapping East from the fixed anchor up top.
