Description

An excellent first climb, and pretty safe/fun, provided you don't bang your head on an overhead chockstone...

This climb is approached from the Amphitheatre Express Trail and is a left/East- facing chimney. It divides the tall North Face fo the First Pinnacle from the Shorter North Face of the East Bench.

Climb the Chimney/Dihedral past multiple squirms and stems around chocks to the top. You can anchor there or continue to the top of the FIrst Pinnacle via the slightly harder SE Arete.

Descend by scrambling West and then North or by rapping East from the fixed anchor up top of the SE Arete.

Protection

A standard set of cams and nuts + some 2' slings to avoid drag. A few large pieces might be good, or some tied-off chock stones.
