Description

This is a great little extension to both of the Little John routes. It deserves the same amount of stars as Little John Right! It is a double crux pitch. Start up either the left or right side, although most people start up the right because it is a straight in crack. The crux here is a thin section. You top out on the pinnacle at the halfway point. The second half is steeper and eventhough gear is used, the moves feel more sporty than the bottom. A must do!

Location

This one pitch route sits on top of Little John. Have your belay set up on the rappel chains for the Little John routes.

Protection

Standard rack to 3". One set of finger sized cams are handy for the bottom crux. A couple of shoulder slings for the top section will keep the rope running smooth. Bolted rappel anchor at the top.

Hardly Pinnacle Extension goes up another 80' pitch of 5.10d from the top of Hardly Pinnacle (FFA 1985 Forkash and Tuttle). Same sort of excellent lay backing and thin crack and well protected. If you liked Hardly Pinnacle keep on truckin' while you are there.

Left side of Hardly Pinnacle is not harder, but has some stemming IIRC to make it reasonable 10d. Dec 10, 2016

Left start felt indeed much harder. Last few moves before joining with right variation are strenuous. Oct 26, 2015

The final 10 feet leading up to the anchors looks way intimidating from below, but there's actually some good face holds up there and it protects quite well.

Very enjoyable climb and pretty mild for the grade (unless you take the left start!). Feb 14, 2011
