At the far left end of the south face, climb the left buttress of the left (orange) pinnacle mentioned below.

Start at the lowest point of the buttress on easy ground, engaging left-leaning crack. Turn final small roof block on the right. Belay off 2 bolts that also act as a short rap off back. Hike down steep gully around left.


The south face of the Stonewall has several distinguishing characteristics. On the far left end is an obvious chimney that splits a wall into two pinnacles, (the “Pin There…” pinnacles.) The left pinnacle is orange-ish. To the right of the pinnacles is an inset wall with a series of small, left-diagonalling roofs and a long, right-curving crack (Pagoda Crack). At the top of the wall is a small formation resembling a pagoda. Further right there are 2 huge roofs in the center of the south face. To the right of the roofs, about halfway up, is a large, left-facing corner with a chimney (P.3 of “Cody Wasn’t Here”.) Best to include a double set of cams to #4 for most of these routes, as well as 60m ropes.


Include cams to 3"

This route is the one I thought looked good as we were approaching, and I was right.
The route has good rock and takes lots of pro, except for a couple sections up high.
If you want to lace it up bring; triple micro cams, singles .75 thru 4" and 2 med nuts, and lots of runners, one rope. slings for the top. It may be a little harder than .6, I don't know.
