Description 

Start beneath the mighty prow. Clamber onto the ledge below the prow. Reach up and clip a bolt, then dramatic moves take you out and up onto the left face of the prow. Climb up past another bolt, and continue straight up on easier ground to the top.

Location 

On the north face of the Pinnacle. Look for the obvious prow on the right end.

Protection 

Standard rack. Bolts protect the crux.

No anchors at the top. Build a gear anchor, then walk across the top and rap off elsewhere (e.g. the Standard Route).

This route might improve with a bit more traffic...and anchors at the top.
