All day shade. This sport route climbs up the side of the pinnacle that faces the main wall. The line traverses left so that it ends at the summit, which you can straddle or stand on for your Facebook profile picture. You may want to extend the draws on a few bolts to help with rope drag, and mind the potential for a swinging fall if the second blows the easy moves at the top.
Moves: unknown
Descent: Bolt anchors
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: RRGCC

The climbing on this is ok. But the setting and the fact you are climbing a pinnacle makes it cool!

I haven't laughed so much on a route in a while. Cross-wrangling fun! The a captain's chair on the other side of the pinnacle is a must -- moss seat cushion when at the helm. Argh Matey!

These are the worst goddamn directions ive ever ficking seen. Whoever made this directions has to be blind. If not they should never be allowed to give directions to anything the rest of their life.

I strongly recommend to never top rope this route; strictly leads. The rope drag and leftwards pull on the climber due to the chain placements are quite gnarly.
