  • Description 

    Go to the South Ridge of the South Pinnacle and wank around to the West Face. About 3 meters left of the South Ridge, there is a steel, flat face of rock. If you back up, you can see where this vertical-to-overhung face will go up a narrow, flat rib to a false summit. Face climb just left of a shallow, junky corner to get off the ground and continue up on in-cuts and jugs on vertical terrain to a slightly overhanging face finish on large in-cut holds. This is the best climbing I found on this formation.


    This route is on the very South end of the West Face.


    ?? - A few pieces here and there, perhaps. I soloed it and did not make note.
