Description

This route is on the east face of hitchcock pinnacle, starting under the obvious roof. I would say it is worth doing for the roof move. If it was closer to the ground, it would be a fun V0/1 bouldering problem. There is one bolt above the roof and a set of chains. This route is easily top roped after climbing the standard route, but rope drag is bad when lowering off. I would recommend topping out and rapping to save your sheath.

I heard a rumor that some holds on this route was chipped out by rock hammers in the early '70s.

Location

East face hitchcock pinnacle, its a no brainer.

Protection

1 bolt up high. Cracks under the roof will probably take anything fat finger sized. Falling on lead over the roof before clipping the bolt would probably be bad news.

Bolts and top-anchors updated by CASA in 2018.
