Description

Climb the obvious left-facing corner. The 5.7 crux is moving left around a bulge about a third of the way up. Near the top there are two options: either continue right up the corner to a set of bolts just right of the pinnacle’s summit (1 star), or traverse left across the highest horizontal crack and continue up the slab to a pair of bolts on the ridge just left of the pinnacle’s summit (3 stars). The traverse to the left is exposed but easier than it appears (5.6), and the anchor is much better for setting up a top rope. Warning: do not use the rusty, partially pulled bolts with chains on the face below the top of the pinnacle.

Protection

1 set of cams up to 2 inches.

A large block at the 5.7 crux about a third of the way up (between the 2nd and 3rd pieces of protection in the photo of Steve) recently fell. Jan 23, 2011
