First pitch is about 100 ft from the main trail. Route starts in the middle of the large gully between Zingers and the Byrd Pinnacle. Pitch 1: Climb about 100 ft to a large tree with a cliff to the left, about 5.5. Pitch 2: Fourth class scramble up and down to the left toward the large pinnacle. Pitch 3: Climb the right side of the Pinnacle. Climb up towards a large hole in the wall (other side of the wall is right of Horndogger), belay on a ledge to the right of the hole in the wall. Pitch 4: Climb around the large heuco (thin), then head straight up the face to a large platform. From here you can connect with Horndogger and others.

4 out of 5 stars Accidentally found a GREAT climb!

Meant to climb one of the climbs to the left but got lost and found this. Fun climb but had to deal with a lot of bushes on the first 2 pitches. Pitches 3 and 4 were quiet and peaceful. There was some loose rock and I didn't trust any of the chicken head knobs. No fixed protection but large ledges to belay from and plenty of spots for gear.
