Description [Suggest Change]

Diagonal up right on easy rock to the base of a short left facing corner (Var. 1, Var. 2) Follow the inside corner to the top. There are photos of people standing on top dating from the early 20th century.

Var. 1 (Unnamed) 5.5
Traverse right to the south side of the pinnacle, mantle up to a ledge and then continue up to the top.

Var. 2 Wayworn 5.7
FA?: Alex Catlin May 1986
Climb the face to the left of the corner, without using the corner.

Location [Suggest Change]

Start on the the west side of the free standing pinnacle at the base of Devil's Chute.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Anchoring possibilities at the top are sparse. Consider how you are going to get down. In the past, after leading to the top, I've had my belayer ground anchor to one of the trees at the base. Drape the rope over the top and rappel off the opposite side.
