This is the only reasonably easy route to the summit of Whiskey Mountain Pinnacle. It is the only side that is not overhanging at some point. Start with either a high mantle or a bouldery move to get to a large ledge at the base. Steep positive holds lead to a slabby finish. The route is pg13 because of the descent. The only options are to downclimb or rappel off a sling around a suspect block that I wedged in a slot.


Get to the base of the pinnacle, then find the obvious weakness on the southwest side.


Small cams protect the crux. It would be prudent not to forget your webbing like I did...
