Description 

This is a small granite pinnacle on the southwest shoulder of Whiskey Mountain. It had a cairn on the summit until I repurposed those rocks as chockstones for a rap anchor. While diminutive in size, it is not a trivial rock to get on top of (or down from).

Getting There 

The shortest route is via the Whiskey Mountain Trail to the Ross Lake Trail to a large swampy meadow. Head for the obvious pinnacle above and to the left. This pinnacle is best climbed as a side trip while going to or from another area.

This is the only reasonably easy route to the summit of Whiskey Mountain Pinnacle. It is the only side that is not overhanging at some point. Start with either a high mantle or a bouldery move to get to a large ledge at the base. Steep positive holds lead to a slabby finish. The route is pg13 because of the descent. The only options are to downclimb or rappel off a sling around a suspect block that I wedged in a slot....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wyoming
