This Pinnacle is easily viewed from the paved road ; It is a cool looking little spire. The rock is soft. Pitch one; Pin placement down low on climb. leads to 2-3 " crack to a ledge. Pitch 2; climb up past a bird's nest to a 2-3" crack ....Loose rock, and climb up a loose pillar at the end.


Located on the west side of the road, 3 miles north of Many Farms.


cams, 2 pins (standard angle, one L A long thick), few nuts. Rap from fixed pins at double rope rap.

This was the first climb I ever did with Lorie Graf;...after this I went on to do many climbs with Lorie;...she was a good climbing partner, and very tough girl....before this, she had climbed a few times with a college climbing class.; that's it! I didn't know Lorie at all, and doing this climb with her was a wake-up call for her, and a "get aquainted" day for us ;..the route was challenging , loose, sort of dicey, but short.....a good "practice" climb for the soft stuff out on the Res. Our 2nd climb together was Castleton; she did just fine. This pinnacle is very close to the road, and it really cool looking. The climbing though, sort of sucks. The adventure of the whole experience does NOT suck;'s big fun for such a little spire. I bet someone else has climbed this spire since it's first ascent;'s just too cute and tempting;..just sitting there by the road;...calling out your name.
