Ascend the obvious chimney between the left side of the pinnacle and the main wall. Climb up through the cave and spiral around to a ledge near the top at the right side of the pinnacle. Fun.

Descent Options:

Bolted anchors on Kokopeli's Dream (on the outer face of the pinnacle).

3 out of 5 stars fun climb

look around and you will find places to plug medium to smaller cams. I misread the guidebook and did a harder variation (climbing the chimney near the leftside entrance, rather than spiraling around to the right). The variation made for interesting climbing, although it is harder than 5.4.
