Start directly under the "nose" at the top of pinnacle, staying on face and not using crack and overhang system to your right, pull nose at top to finish, not pulling nose drops grade to a 5.6


Top rope, anchor to trees at the top of the cliff. They are set back a bit, depending on what part of the cliff that you are on, so bring along some static line, or webbing to extend the anchor.

Pretty good line despite the amount of vegetation that takes over the rock in the spring/summer. Fall would be better. You get some nice exposure and a great view at the top. From what I could see this cliff could have a few more lines developed if the bushes growing out of the cracks were hacked off. Great rock just not a prime destination by any means, but if you are in the area check it out.
