Access Issue: Private Property Details
The approach road (County Road 411/Trail Lake Road) runs through private land on an easement from the Whiskey Basin wildlife reserve to the public campground at the head of Ring Lake. It is illegal to leave the road without permission from the landowners in this area except for the boat ramp at Torrey Lake provided on a goodwill basis.
Description [Suggest Change]
This climbs the left off-width crack (plus additional small face holds) on this face. The crux is low. Trevor Bowman lists this as 5.8 in his guidebook, but it seems more consistent with 5.7 to me.
Location [Suggest Change]
East face of the bench below (but connected to) Trail Lake Pinnacle's northeast edge. This climb is the off-width crack just left of the farthest left bolt line.
Protection [Suggest Change]
You could lead with wide trad gear, or reach right to clip the bolts of Spring Fever like I did. Alternatively, rappel from the highest 2-bolt anchor and set up a top rope from the the anchor this route shares with Spring Fever.
