Description 

Follow Tantalus Wall or Milk Run for 3 pitches to the halfway ledge, or rap in to the upper pitches. Move up right 15M and gain a superb dike trending right across the wall(9 Bolts, 10D). The next pitch, turning through the roof is long and sustained, following the dike the whole way(14 bolts, 11D). Climb a hollow flake (SKETCH!!!) to a belay(11D). A tricky start on the second to last pitch scares some away(11D). Save a #2 and #3 Camalot for the last pitch.

Location 

At the start of the Yosemite Pinnacle, or milk run. Walk down.

Protection 

Bolts and Gear. Always be prepared for rain and to bail.

Simply awesome, so much fun. No PG sections on it I thought, aside from maybe the hollow flakes that go at 5.8 or so. I did a 3 points off lurch move at the crux, though my shorter friends, that are better at slab than I am, were able to tech it out statically.

Fantastic route. Did this route yesterday (January 26th) during a dry spell with great conditions. An excellent alternate start is described HERE.
