Doug Burns following Pinnacle Standard.
This is the easiest way to the top of the Pinnacle formation on the west side of Practice Rock. Climb the crack past the low crux to a good ledge. From here continue up the ramp. You can climb right against the main wall, but I prefer the crack system in the middle of the ramp. The last twenty feet or so are the best of the climb. It is a good hand crack to the finish. The top of the Pinnacle is a great spot. A small ledge with air on all sides!
This climb ascends the south face of the Pinnacle formation, starting from the same ledge as Practice Crack.
A standard rack is great for this climb. I like to have an extra #1 BD, and a #4 could be useful depending where you decide to start. There is a bolted anchor with chains at the top. Please put a carabiner through the chains while toproping on this anchor (or any anchor!). They have been seeing some wear from lowering.

One can top out on Practice Rock via a short but airy second pitch (5.5). Step across the gap and move up the featured face to the top. Most people rap from the pinnacle but it's worth doing the whole thing at least once.

One of the chains up top has been wedged into a crack and is stuck. There are other chains up there that can be used for rappelling, but it would be nice if someone brought a hammer and a 2ft long piece of pipe (or something similar) and tried knocking that thing outta there.
