Description 

Great slab route to the summit of Pinnacle Peak. The start comes off the second pitch of South Crack. I recommend starting as for the second pitch of South Crack. When you reach the toe of the slab, stem left onto the slab and pad your way to the top. When you reach a horizontal crack, move right and then continue up. Easily done as one pitch. Note. After clipping the last bolt, if you go straight up, seems like a hard 5.9 move. The further right you go, the easier it gets.

Location 

Located on the summit of Pinnacle peak. You have to climb the second pitch of South Crack to reach the start of Silhouette.

Protection 

The second pitch of South Crack obviously requires trad gear. The finish on Silhouette is bolted. ? 4 bolts. Fixed anchors.

A good linkup is to step left before the last bolt and finish up on the last 2 bolts of 28th Day (5.9)

Nice slab! Pecker Party and Silhouette made for a nice trip to the top.

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.
