Description

The East Face of the East Pinnacle is the largest face on the Hayden massif. There are several route options here, but this line follows the prominent dihedral system on the left or south side of the face. Head up over easy ground for the first pitch to reach the base of the vertical dihedral system. The second pitch is the crux pitch with very nice stemming options and plenty of holds on the face. From the nice ledge system at the top of this pitch, pick your line heading up to the summit.

Standard alpine rack works well
