DescriptionA fine route for its grade, the Standard Route is the easiest way to get to the top of the Pinnacle to set up topropes for other routes. It also has a cool direct start if you want more of a challenge.
Starting at a large boulder below the Pinnacle corner, step off the boulder and up the arete. Move left a short distance, then back around to the right and up the easy and well-protected face to the top.
Alternate start (5.9): Start from the ground just right of the boulder and move up a vertical crack system with sparse protection. Continue up the face to join the regular route about halfway up.
