About Pinnacle Peak:

Since the 90's this mountain has been closed down due to a private housing development and golf course. But has been re-opened for recreational use. This area is one of Phoenix's own classic granite areas. Many classic crack and bolted routes. There are access restrictions on the lower east wall, do not climb there. All signs and restrictions must be obeyed. This is a privilege for us to be able to climb here again.
