Description

The Main Pinnacle Ridge is located above the Skull formantion. From the meadow below to the south, hike up a climbers trail heading north and around the Skull's west side. Once on the backside of the Skull, continue north through faint trail networks the formations above (Pinnacles #1-6). Cross through a corridor (some scrambling required) and reach the north side of these pinnacles. Once there, the pinnacle are identifyed by looking at their north faces. Pinnacle #1 is the far left formation, then #2 is the next formation to the right, as are the remaining pinnacles.

Location

The start of 'Razor Tips' is on the west face of Pinnacle #2. Start at the very bottom (the boulder in front of the face is OFF) and crimp your way up past 4 bolts. The crux is getting past the 1st bolt as one inches past balancy moves on thin edges. With more traffic, this route could be a better quality route.

Protection

The sharp rock on this is fairly uninspiring. May 2, 2008

Really Chris? I found it to be an added element of excitement. Just don't pop off any holds or you'll have missing finger tips! ;) May 9, 2008
