Per George Bracksieck: The 1st, 2nd and 3rd pinnacles are NOT closed for raptor nesting.
This climb is a good route on solid rock. Nice incut edges appear one after the other, and a crack offers very good pro at a relatively safe distance from the ground if you are leading. Climb up the face to reach a 1.5 meter section of crack 6m off of the ground. The crack goes from thin to fists over its length and is the distinguishing feature of the route.
After passing the crack, cling and edge your way up the arete just to the right on solid positive holds until the rock becomes jumbled and broken, then head in on a ledge and finish up the gap/slot/chimney between the Ginseng Pillar and the 2nd Pinnacle. This is a good route on good rock.
