California > San Bernardino… > Big Bear Lake Area > Big Bear North > Holcomb Valley… > Central Pinnacles > Pistol Whipped Wall

Description

Climb the prominent rounded arete up and left to anchors at the top of the block. The climbing is decent but feels somewhat awkward and is not on par with the other routes here.

Location

Right of the main face is a large block which is home to this route and Hair Trigger which climbs the outer face of the block.

Protection

6 bolts, chain anchors

[Hide Comment] This is not the unlisted 5.8, that might be the crack in the corner to the chimney above. My partner and I liked the climbing, apart from the ledge you get close to when you fall. It was varied, but grainy in places. We thought it felt like 10+ but we climbed it right after some guys told us it was 5.8 so that might've had an influence. Sep 1, 2015
