Description 

Access to this climb crosses the gully right below Upstairs and goes through a notch in the rock behind an oak tree. Another smaller gully goes past a blocky chimney to the Squirrel Crack and the mid-pitch double cracks of Silly Pinnacle. The Squirrel Crack follows large cracks and flake roofs to a large, 6”+, off-width leading to a bolt belay with a small stance. You will notice from the belay that bolts and a crack ledge lead right. This alternate climb leads to the final bolt ladder of the Silly Pinnacle. The free climbing traverse to the bolt ladder is about 5.8 and can be done as one pitch including the Squirrel Crack portion.

Location 

In the middle of the Silly Pinnacle. Approach from main trail and follow the gully to the left that leads up and behind the silly pinnacle.

Protection 

medium - large gear up to 6"+
