Description:

A really great climb. Start just left of Xyphoid Fever on a ledge. Stem up a pair of cracks to a hand crack. Follow this up to a ledge above. An easy chimney leads to a slab and a ledge above. Rappel with one 60m rope.

4 out of 5 stars Byrd Pinnacle

Did all the routes in this area with Joe A and family. Very nice twin crack route on solid varnish. Same short chimney finish as the left variation of Xyphoid Fever. Good one to teach trad leading on in my opinion.

4 out of 5 stars Kind of confusing

as to where to exit the chimney. I exited about 2/3s up onto the arete to the right. Watch out for fragile holds in the chimney and lack of footholds on the lower part of the route. Recommended

4 out of 5 stars fun in the sun

great route to climb in the winter, sunny all day. 2 #3 C4's and probably a#4 would have been nice to have. Double .5-1 was nice.
