There are a million variations to this climb. On the first pitch, I went left for a little more exposure and some possible 5.7-8 climbing. Then you can go up and over the pinnacle, or left around it. From there, it's just an obvious scramble up amazing jugs in an incredible setting. There is no reason to make this more than a pitch-and-a-half.
First belay below the pinnacle, second at the "scoop" in the middle of the upper face, third at the top. Add half a pitch between one and two for the pinnacle.
