5 out of 5 stars Cardinal Pinnacle - Regular route

Swing leads with Scott Langner, 5 pitches. Caution - need 2 60m ropes for rap off the top. There is a schetchy mid point rap station on the east side for 1 single rope. Better to rap down front or down climb last pitch and follow cairns to a short rap ito the exit gulleyon east side
