Pinnacles East Rock Climbing
Jochen leading the upper section of Bullish.
This covers the handful of crags to the east of Lost Orbit Rock
, and is the smallest area with the least amount of climbing.
Although on the short side, these crags offer fun and technical climbing in an out-of-the-way area.
Recommended routes in the area:

Plan on a 5 minute walk from Lost Orbit Rock, a 10 minute walk from the vicinity of Parking Lot Rock and a 15 minute walk from the upper parking area.
