About Cynical Pinnacle:

Cynical Pinnacle is the beautiful obvious spire that is the centerpiece of the Cathedral Spires. The routes here are as good as climbing gets, and are popular despite a brutal one hour uphill approach.

From the pullout below the pinnacle, find a steep gravelly trail. This approach is steep and long, and will take a climber in good shape a solid hour.
