Description Suggest change

The climbing route faces the trail, and, starts after a short scramble to a small rock saddle (old star-dryvin' belay bolt at saddle).

Scramble up easy ridge to steeper rock at a broken horizontal seam. Clip bolt above the break, send that rig to the summit.

Great position, a free standing pinnacle and some might find inspiration for something after staring longingly at the formation (a cold shower?).

Classic Pinnacles summit. Well worth the scenic hike.

Historical note: the 1966 Roper guide rated this route 5.3.

Location Suggest change

From the High Peaks Trail starting on the East Side, goes past the Anvil about 200 meters and look to the left: it looks like, uhh: Unmentionable!

Rappel from the summit.

Protection Suggest change

One bolt protects the short crux and route. Two bolt anchor on summit for the rappel back to the ground.
