Description:

Follows the ramp leading to the pinnacle from the south. P1 follows the arete to a ledge with a bolt. P2 follows the arete to a smooth slab with a fixed tricam below it. Then move left onto the face for a few exposed moves before following the ramp again to the pinnacle. P3 stand on the pinnacle for a case of vertigo. Belay to avoid rope drag or step across from the base of the pinnacle to the main face and up to the top.

4 out of 5 stars with Josh

not recommended when wet. friction dependent in places. Turns a 5.4 into a scary route
