The start of south crack begins in the easy wide crack just below the southeast corner of the main pinnacle. Climb this pitch to sundeck boulder. Continue in crack on the south side of the main pinnacle to the summit. Classic route!

2 out of 5 stars So....

Didn't think the beta on this one was all that great. The chimney is easy but serious, I recommend staying left into the well protected corner crack and enjoy the ride up. After that we had to bail as it was getting late, even got locked into the park and had to call the police to get out.

Only did the first pitch.
