I should definitely have placed more gear on this. I got blinders after a piece pulled below the traverse. Regardless of that the climb protects really well and is a blast to do. One of the slightly longer climbs at Sandrock.
The start was fun, but short. The traverse is more like walking than climbing. The chimney is fun, but short. Great view, though. If I climb it again I'll try a variation to spice it up a bit. Rappel from one of the better rappels on the Pinnacle.
Not really, it's great everyday. Flashed this route on TR but didn't feel too pumped at the end. I followed the crack near the beginning, I think it's rate 10b/c, and the chimney for me was fairly easy with a little back work. You can climb outside the chimney onto the face of the rock, but the chimney is good practice.. so stay in it! Pretend you're Santa Claus :)
This was a really fun and challenging onsight for me! The start was a little intimidating, but the gear is good, and I felt more at ease once I got to the traverse ledge. The chimney itself is a tight squeeze and has some committing moves, but again it's got pro where you need it. A very satisfying lead, deserves the two stars!
