Climb the obvious wide flaring crack until you can pull out onto the face above. Continue up the face until you reach the top of the pinnacle. Fun climbing but sort of a novelty route.


Located on a stand alone pinnacle in front of the main wall.


Trad to #5 Camalot. Run out face to the top. No anchor for descent. Down climb the back or get creative with a rappel off the "summit".
