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]
Follow a left-angling, awkward flaring hand crack up the right side of a small pillar. From the top of the pillar, climb straight up and right on steep, fun pockets to the anchor ledge. The grade, like most at this pinnacle, is fairly soft.
Location [Suggest Change]
It starts just right of the giant off-width called The Wide One on the lower southeast face of the tower
Protection [Suggest Change]
Medium cams would protect the crack, but the top looks hard to protect traditionally (tricams in pockets?). Best to just toprope this short climb from the 2 bolt anchor it shares with Technicality.
