Description

The route climbs the west face of the pinnacle. Begin at the low roof, boulder up to get situated on the face and then either climb straight up the left arete to a ledge or traverse right to a groove and up. The arete is a little harder, but climbing to the groove puts you in danger of a groundfall.

After gaining the ledge, follow the narrow face protecting out of horizontals to anchors on the summit. Rappel, do not lower.

Location

When you reach the wall you can't miss the pinnacle. Start on top of the low boulders. Belay the second up if you have a small party or set up a TR is you have more than three. Rappel from the chains to get down.

Protection

One bolt, TCUs and/or tri-cams.
+1 for Tricams, as long as you know how to use them. Overall I thought this little climb had more challenging gear than RRG average. Mar 20, 2017

Bring some tricams if you want more solid pro. There are a lot of horizontals for placing pro, but in the upper section of the tower the horizontals aren't very parallel-sided and often flare outwards. I got a C4 #0.75 in a gently flaring horizontal maybe 10-15 feet down from the top-out as my final piece, but it was a bit sandy and I'm not sure it would hold a fall from the top. Luckily the climbing is pretty easy if you feel along the right edge of the face. Oct 26, 2011

There is a new anchor with chains closer to the edge from which you can lower. Very easy climb, great for beginners. May 22, 2010
