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.
Just a few feet right of the aptly named Pleasant Surprise crack, the main bulk of Trail Lake Pinnacle forms a dihedral with the smaller wall that has the majority of the routes. This corner appears much nicer than it is. Awkward moves and layers of dusty sand characterize this route.
