MacIntosh follows the southeast arete on the North Pinnacle. At the top resist the temptation to grab for the arete and instead go left! This and the other routes on the pinnacle can be top roped by scrambling uop the east face.

4 out of 5 stars Strange top out

This was a fun route! Really was. But then the top out directly above the last bolt was a shocker. It was covered in sand and loose shale when I did it, as consequent, I never saw the supposed fourth bolt as shown in the Bigfoot Guide (I assumed it was under the shale). I ended up traversing right along the arete to top out.

There is no scramble up the top of this pinnacle. The east face is a 12 foot climb above a large chockstone in the chimney to the right of Macintosh.

I used this to get to the top of the pinnacle so I could toprope back door man. Last bomber hold may fall off soon.
