This very unique pitch climbs the chimney to reach the overhanging face/arete on the inside face of the pinnacle.

Start from Paisano Ledge. Stem up the chimney behind the pinnacle. As it widens, a full-body stem is required to reach holds on the face of the pinnacle.

Once comitted to the face, crank bouldery moves around the overhanging arete (5.12-), then climb the very delicate (5.12b) outer face to the top.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt belay/rappel anchor (80 ft. rap)
