Hosswatch Pinnacle hidden below the road.


This is the closest rock to the gate at land of the lost. It is short but contains several more great beginner routes. The longer routes are accessed by hiking left or right around the pinnacle.

Getting There 

Hidden right below the road. Look for a large flat with cement pad on a large landing to your left right before turning right towards the settling ponds. Walk to the edge of the pad and look down.

Never Mind The Bollocks 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  California : Redwood Coast : ... : Hosswatch
Fun route on the east side of the pinnacle. Most of the face looks like, well, bollocks... but there is this little gem squeezed in there perfectly. The route follows a few bulges on giant jugs. Very fun! Finish at the chains (50') or continue up 30' of unprotected 5.5 to the top of the pinnacle where there are more anchors on the north side of the pinnacle (no rap rings on the upper bolts)....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
