BETA PHOTO: Pistol Whipped (5.11a), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles


Climb a smooth, vertical face with edges (crux) to a sloping ledge and then tackle the slightly overhung and juggy headwall above finishing on a ledge with anchors.


Located on the far right side of the main face and about 10' left of a short left-facing corner system.


8 bolts, chain anchors

Stay off the ramp leading right to the corner system for full (11a) rating.

Technical face climbing for most of the way until you reach the final bolt.
A hidden hold behind an "obvious" sloper is bound to land the unexpected some air time. This was a great route for me with what felt like consistent 5.11 movement throughout when staying off the ramp.
