The off width wasn't so bad and protected halfway ...

P1: Chimney up the impossible to protect section to anchor placed perfectly to haul your clients up with a 3 to 1 plus 1. Have your clients sit behind you on the huge ledge still on cowtail belay. 45'

P2: Solo the short face to Bolted anchor, again set up for a haul if need-be. 20'

P3: Mantle, and solo the exposed right face to the summit, find the anchor bolts, extend your anchor and belay up your seconds and enjoy the view(and you tips!).

Lower: Pair of bolts on north side provide double rope rappel. Awkwardly placed (not my favorite, but thanks anyway Jim Taylor)


East side of Pinnacle (away from raod)

Start in the corner in the chimney, go left on big ledge to 20' 2nd pitch then up and right for 40' last pitch.


Bring your Big Bros or run it out. Each pitch has bolted belay stations except the top. Belay from a tree at the top.

Can this be rap'd off with a single 60m? Or is it mandatory 2 ropes?

Fun climb and a great adventure for a newer climber. Nice view sitting on the top. I did it in 2011 and we rapped off with a single rope which I'm pretty sure was a 60m. Think I could see the ground as I lowered it to verify it touched down. If not you could leave a second rope on the ground, rap off on a not-doubled-over single line, tie on the second rope for the person at the top to pull up and set up a double rappel without having to climb with a second rope.

From the top anchors a 60m easily touches the ground between the slabby boulder and the pinnacle itself. Tie knots in your ends regardless. Have fun!
