Description 

Climb the lower face (Swartling and Mayer provide a good photo of your options), then climb the pinnacle proper using amazing incut sidepulls, an obscure knob on the left arete, and once established on the South ledge a throw to the summit plateau.

This would be "great" and not just "good" if it didn't have that huge ledge in the middle.

Setting this as a TR is a real trick! Good nuts and finger sized gear in the summit block.

Location 

The outside face of Prospect Point Pinnacle. From Prospect Point, descend to the South and go down to the second ledge system.

Protection 

Small, sparse, and it won't keep you from decking.
