Description:

Awesome link up of Crack of No Hope and Wild Kingdom. Start same as West Face but trend left on gritty runout rock to gain left side of large ledge. Continue up obvious cracks to chimney then laser-cut fist crack. A 5.2 gully leads to aa PERFECT left facing corner to a super thin tips crack (crux) then wide crap then a flake then you are done! WooHoo. Great route.

Descent Options:

Rappel with at least a 70m rope or scramble off.

5 out of 5 stars Crack Kingdom

Crack Kingdom is the best "moderate" route on the Pinnacle no doubt. The 5.10c roof pitch was the best lead of the day for me, pulling the roof into a stellar finger crack traversing to a hand crack finish. The short off width on the pitch below was pretty stellar as well. WiFi at the dude ranch across the road! Flush toliets in the Bishop Creek campgound!...only California dude...
