I find the bigger issues at Pinnacle are the teenagers throwing bottles. Ground up leading is a little dangerous to me here and recommend rapping to check holds for broken glass first. I find most of the kids I have talked to understanding if you keep it casual and not parenting. I tell them to "drink and have fun, just try to pack your trash out. And if you MUST drunkenly throw items off the edge, don't be a pussy let it dribble down the cliff, throw it like a champ and try to hit the houses below!" Obviously I would prefer them not being there at all or packing out their trash, but good luck with that. I try the compromise approach. Hell I would have loved to have a cliff to get drunk on in HS and throw shit off of. If people yelled at me for drinking I would have told off whoever it was as an annoying adult, but if they only asked to keep the broken glass off the holds, I probably would have agreed.

First time I yelled at one of those teenagers was the first time I realized I crossed the bridge to being an adult.
