Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details

Description

This climb starts out wide and continually narrows until a tree is reached. Sling the tree for pro, and continue up a finger crack to the pointed pinnacle.

Take a nut tool on lead to clean the finger crack above the tree.

Rap to the right 60ft. off of slings tied around the pinnacle with rings on them.

Why not add a pinnacle to your Sunnyside Bench Jamcrack routine?

Location

This is the next crack uphill from Jamcrack.

Protection

Standard Rack plus a log sling and a sling to leave at the anchor.

More people would climb this if the tree wasn't blocking the view of the crack. I do not support the altering of any established routes. However, there is a grey area when a change needs to made to save a route. Maybe chains should be put up on this route to save the top of the pinnacle from breaking off. Jan 1, 2010

As of 10/18/16, slings were sun bleached and unsafe. Added another, but make sure you bring extra with you. 9 feet long will get you around the pinnacle. Oct 20, 2016
