Comments: (Another) fun variation: Start on first few moves of Spring Route, clip bolt #2 of Epidural, head over to Rusty's Cave route, and before clipping chains on Rusty's, head up Poor Man's P Crack. Yields a nice long "mixed" trad and sport pitch. A few cams to 1" and a #3.5 camalot will get you up to the PMPC bolts. Several slings. 70m rope gets you down.

Comments: Worthy route. The position, length, and fun moves more than make up for the chossiness. All trad gear and only trad gear (unusual for Bishop Peak) gives EC, for me, its charm. I went left up high and finished at the "Poor Man's P Crack" anchors. A small cam can be placed as a directional about 30 feet below and 15 feet to climber's right of the PMPC anchor if you want to top rope EC from the PMPC anchors.

Comments: Stellar line! Legit crack moves lead to sweet face. Relatively long pitch length and solid rock quality enhance. At the top of the crack go left (a few easy face moves) to "Out of Hangers" or right (5.8ish traverse) into "P-Crack". As other posters have noted, going straight up puts one smack dab into "R/X" terrain. Gold sized and smaller camalots sew up the crack. Both the "P-Crack&quo... more >>

Comments: Sent it today on a beautiful February day in SLO. Sweet route! Positive, technical moves. We placed two cams (3/8", 1/2") in the seam leading up to the first bolt. Three bolts total on route not counting anchor bolts. No pro between third (last) bolt and anchor. Stout moves near bolts and just above third bolt lead to runout 5.8 to the anchor. Heady, quality lead. Fine P-Wall stuff here.

Comments: I agree with Chris and "Pig"; it's a classic line. Themes for me were sustained nature of the climbing (mucho 5.9 and 10a), amount of time spent out above your draws, and the fun moves. Two notes: Great ledge at the top of pitch two (other belays are hanging), and the sun hit us around 10-1030 in September. Go get it!


Location: CA : Central Coast : Pinnacles National Park : East Side : The Hand : Love Line (5.10b/c)

Comments: Sweet route. First pitch felt like 10c "r" to me, and pumpy. Second pitch felt like 10a, not runnout, not pumpy, but with very cool exposure. Be sure to sling bolt #6 on pitch two or face big time rope drag. There is a fixed nut after bolt #6 (pitch 2) as of yesterday (3/7/14) that that comes in handy. Definitely primo Pinnacles stuff here.

Comments: Hey j moore, good on you. Connecting Rusy's to poor mans p and bypassing the poor mans p anchors makes for a great pitch. Trad, sport, relatively long, great position, and you can lower off with a single 70m rope. I hope people learn about it and climb it. Shall I take down the page, change the fa info to you and leave the page, or something else? Thanks, DD

Comments: I agree with Bryan's comments. Climbed it yesterday, 8/14/13 with Allan Weidner. DEFINITELY AN OBSCURE GEM. Heaps of really cool stemming with a bit of chimneying, laybacking, and jamming thrown in. The layback moves on the third pitch are killer bee. A few thoughts: On the approach, be sure to traverse all the way around the base of the phantom pinnacle formation and then approach the base of the climb from the uphill side. Take a copy of Bryan's route photo. Approach is a bushwhack, no d... more >>

Comments: Did MI on 1/7/12. Citadel canyon is a beautiful place that sees less play than other west side areas. MI is tall (for a sport pitch), and fairly sustained. Positive holds and great rock by Pinnacles standards. The hangerless bolts (first and third) do have washers on them which seems to make hanging wired nuts on them somewhat okay (why no hangers?). The rap from Peon's delight easily reaches the ground with a 60m rope. Plenty of bolts protect MI; no runnouts to speak of. MI is ... more >>
