Description 

Junk Show Pinnacle is a ~300' tower on the north side of the Alpine Lite Cliffs. We approached carefully by downclimbing the gully behind Easter Island, but it could be accessed by hiking directly over the saddle and down the fall line. It is in a typical alpine situation with loose rock and lichen. This gets full sun exposure in the afternoon (at least in July).

Getting There 

Park at the small pullout near mile marker 8 a couple of curves before Summit Lake. Walk back NE about 0.2 miles to the saddle between Mt. Warren and Rogers Peak, and carefully pick your way up the slope. Alpine Lite is a 20 minute walk directly over the saddle. Once over the saddle, walk west downhill until you see cairns. There are several gullies to scramble down - the one furthest right was a little too loose. Traverse to the skier's left.

This is a 1-star route with a 2-star summit. The initial moves off the deck are a blue TCU crux. It is 5.8 climbing above that. There are other lines to climber's left that might be better.Style note: mark the grade 5.8 C1 for Gregger. I did the initial move and fell when a loose hold moved. I stepped in a sling the second time. Scott followed clean for the guesstimate of 5.11....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
