DescriptionWhile the road was closed in 2005 and early 2006 this offered a nice remote climb on a very aesthetic spire. It was very cool to bike in to do this climb.
The route is comprised of fun face climbing next to a wide crack that is initially steep but quickly relents. The second pitch is on the shady side and is more of a boulder problem. Avoid the leftward traverse and boulder straight up the face on stellar moves. Of course you should do the route a second time to do the leftward traverse just for the cowboy move onto the arete. Many variations exist on the pinnacle.
