Follow 4 bolts on the left side of the slab.
This is a good route, but run-out.

this route has been retro bolted. There are now two bolts on the way to what used to be the first bolt. There may be another bolt added above as well. Back in the seventies this route was reasonable because there was a tree 15 feet up. We used to stand on the tree to spot the leader on her way to the first bolt. After the tree fell off, it was severely runnout and very few people climbed it anymore. That problem has been fixed. It's a lovely route now, very safe. Cajun Queen and Fakin it were left as is, but brand new routes have been added to either side, nice, close reasonable bolting for the grade. And that isn't the only new route in the pinnacles. They are coming back! Apr 26, 2017

A Peshastin classic! Rumor is that it's no longer R-rated. Apr 14, 2017
