Description Suggest change

An exceptional arching crack on beautiful orange granite. Steep and difficult for the grade, it requires endurance. The crux is about 15 feet of thin hands through a couple bulges/small roofs.

Location Suggest change

The route is not on The Cardinal Pinnacle proper; it is on the small formation to the left. Rap the route or scramble off the backside. Lots of loose rock at the top so be careful while rappelling or belaying your second up.

Protection Suggest change

1 to 4" cams, doubles in 2-3" sizes
