Begin on the east face on wide cracks (8ish) to a belay ledge with a single modern anchor bolt. Pitch 2 traverses right on hands to the corner where it goes up to overhung rattly fingers then eases up; finish on 2 bolts or stay in chimney.


Start on the east face of the Pinnacle and rap from summit with single rope down South Crack.


Standard rack, one bolt.

A rowdy and fun climb! The crux is steep and stellar! It's engaging climbing from start to finish.

Classic line! Pitch 1 easy with maybe 1 move of 5.3 to 2 new bolts on a ledge. After that the climbing is awesome from start to finish with a burly crux about mid-way. You'd be crazy to not finish on the 2 bolt direct line. That's some really fun climbing to top it off!

Onsight rack: 1x .4-3 | 2x .5-2 | 4 slings | 4 quick-draws (save 2 for the bolts at the end).

2 glue in bolts on top of the sub summit.

FYI, you can rap from the bigger glue ins at the lip of the sub-summit(east side) to the ground with a 70m rope by heading straight down Powder Puff (towards the p1 belay). Even with a 60m you could make it back to the P1 anchors and do the final short rap to the group. It's a rope stretcher so knots are advised.

Went up silhouette this morning, and there was a huge nest mid way through south crack. We didn't actually see a bird so we didn't let the rangers know. Please keep your eyes out if you decide to go up! If you find out it's active it might be worth letting the rangers know, better the crag gets shut down than someone gets hurt
