Description

The east face seems to have the best protection of the other 3 faces with the cleanest climbing, and a better belay spot, so it has become the standard route up the pinnacle. Climb up the face utilizing pro when you can get it in the horizontal cracks.

Location

East face of the pinnacle. Rap from the 87 slings wrapped around the block on top.

Protection

A few cams. Most climbers place only 3-4 pieces in the .75 to 2 camalot region. The top section seems a little shy on pro, but nothing too runout or scary.

I placed 3 pieces of gear for this climb. A .75 camalot in the first horizontal crack right above the start, a .4 camalot in the second horizontal crack, and we looped a short sling through a hole in the face about 25 feet up on the left side of the small dihedral in the route. I'd also say that this climb is only a 5.7, just as the book rates it. Super fun! Aug 22, 2011
