Description

Pinnacate climbs a left facing corner above and right of the Unnamed 5.6 and 5.8+ routes. While it can be linked with either of the Unnamed approach routes it may be best done as a two pitch climb.

Approach by climbing either Unnamed route (5.6 or 5.8+) and then traversing right to the base of the corner. Belay here. Launch up the fun hands to fingers corner, jamming and stemming your way to a fun mantle finish.

Descent - Rappel from a tree or scramble off to the climbers right about 100 yards to a walkdown descent trail.

Protection

1 set Stoppers
1 set TCU's
5. - #2 Camalot
Long Slings if linking with either approach route

This is a fun route with secret holds making it easier then it looks. There is a two bolt anchor above this route. The anchor above the approach cracks has a hanger missing but it's possible to get a small cam in below it. Jul 25, 2015
