A bold and classic line on Death Row Pinnacle. Climb up the shallow left-facing corner to a stance below the overlap/roof. Place gear here and traverse left on the smooth face below the overlap. Climb up and back right to regain the overlap as it curves upwards into another left-facing corner (scary). Place gear in the corner and continue up with some powerful liebacks and slippery feet.


Standard rack. A large cam (#3 or #4 Camalot) is useful for the upper corner.
