A view of the box canyon, with three great routes:...


Go up the crack to a fixed anchor at the top. The crux is just before the top where the crack is flared fingers.


This route is located in a box canyon behind the Peninsula, the tower of rock at the left end of the cliff. Facing into the canyon, there are two steep cracks on the right wall. This is the left of these two cracks.


A standard rack to #1 Camalot. The start is intimidating and protected with tricky #1 and #4 Camalots right next to each other.

This is another gem at Pinnacle Mtn. The first piece of gear is 15ft off the deck, but as Jim points out, a #1 and a #4 (or #5BD C4) work well in conjunction to protect the moves to get established in the crack above.
