Just one of many incredible views from the High Pe...
Sunny, shady, windy, long approach, crowds, seclusion, and incredible views. The High Peaks has it all. There are hundreds of pinnacles to choose from at all grades. Depending on the day, it can have a very "alpine" feel.
Buy a copy of Brad Young's book, "A Climbers Guide to Pinnacles National Monument". (copyright 2007) One of the best climbing guides I've ever bought. Brad & company put a lot of work into this book. Please reward him by buying one for yourself and your favorite climbing partner. Available here: maximuspress.com/
Take the Juniper Canyon trail from the west side or the High Peaks trail from the east side. You can't miss it. Just keep going till you run out of "up". The 2 mile (+/-) approach is steep, has plenty of switchbacks, a 1000' elevation gain, and takes over an hour. Bring lots of water.
