Current Raptor Advisories for Pinnacles National Parknps.gov/pinn/planyourvisit/…
Closures effective as of the day after Martin Luther King Day- July 3. Check closure website for details on closed areas.
SPECIAL NOTICE: due to nesting condors the Machete Ridge area may be closed, from Dos Equis / Corona on west face then west around the south side to The Hideout including the popular Old Original. Check the NPS and Friends of Pinnacles websites for further information.
Descent is accomplished by either traversing back to the notch and rappelling off of Knifeblade Direct (two rope rappel unless you have 70m), or rappelling in two stages off of the top of Stiletto (5.10d). As of this post, I have replaced the old rotten cordelette on the top of Stiletto with a new double length sling, a couple large oval biners and a quick link.
