Description

You can string a rope between the first and second pinnacles to make a fairly exposed tyrolean traverse. The two giant, flatiron's style eyebolts at the top of the pinnacles make for some bomber anchors. The crux is in getting the rope across the gap without the rope snagging on something. I found it's easiest to climb the downclimb routes for both.

Location

Approach via the west side of the second pinnacle. I anchored the second pinnacle first via the downclimb and dragged the rope around and up the first pinnacle downclimb. You may want to bring jumars if doing manly upside down hand over hand is too hard, and you don't want to get stuck in the middle of the rope.

Protection

You can protect the two downclimbs, but you'd need a second rope for that. Why bother? Use the gigantic eyebolts located at the top of the pinnacles for bomber anchors. Alternately, sling or tie the rope around the huge knob that is directly in line between the two bolts.

Why is this on here? I realize it involves climbing, but it's not a route. Jun 30, 2015
