This is the easiest route to the top of Paisano Pinnacle. From Paisano Ledge, walk back into the slot behind the pinnacle, and then chimney up and right. Eventually you reach a thin crack high on the southwest corner. Exciting, exposed wide stemming and face climbing take you a short distance up to the top. Once you figure out the moves, they aren't difficult to do. The protection is fair. This climb may be more difficult for shorter climbers.

Fun stuff! The stemming is easy and the pro is great when you actually need it. Don't get suckered into the crack is all I have to say.
