X-formation on the face. Long moves to get off the ground. The crux is in the center of the X. Fun climbing on cool features. Beware of some of the thin features, there is some fragile rock. Rap from a tree. If you are feeling an adventure climb continue up and left of the tree through dirt and brush to an old set on bolted anchors but its better to just rap off the tree


20 feet right of the pinnacle.

This kinda has two cruxes. Getting off the ground is an interesting boulder problem that will protect with a small cam. The high crux is pulling the small roof to work up into the relatively easy off-width. Take a #4 and 5.
