Description 

This is a fantastic three-pitch outing that deserves more traffic. It climbs the first 1.5 pitches of Warriors of the Wasteland before exiting out right and climbing the arete to the top of Martini Pinnacle.

P1: Same as Warriors of the Wasteland.

P2: Climb P2 of Warriors of the Wasteland. After the crux stem of this pitch, break out right and clip a couple bolts on easier and slabby terrain to an anchor before the wall steepens to vertical.

P3: This pitch is completely bolted. Weave up the arete, using a variety of techniques. The climbing is superb and will make you think!

A 30m rappel will get you down to a set of anchors to the right of fall line. The route your rappel is called "Shaken, Not Stirred" which is 5.11b and also apparently a worth-while climb. From these anchors, rappel a 60m stretcher to the start of Freeway.
