Shot from the airy 2nd pitch belay station (if you do this in 3 pitches). Ken's showing the fun that can be had on a 5.3 (by far the easiest pitch of the climb) with some exposure (relative).

This is taken from the top of the 2nd pitch of the Army Route (Pinnacle). Can anyone confirm if this is the 1st middle buttress or if I"m off by one? (I believe this south, south-west of the pi

Comments: Sorry if this sounds preachy, but please use a top-rope setup from the anchors. I was out with a first-timer last weekend and noted that the set of eye-bolts i was using was already worn 1/4 of the way through the bolt.

(And realistically 99% of people reading this site are already concientious enough to use a top-rope setup. I just hate seeing people saw through the bolts on popular routes like C-Gap and West Point Crack)

I'll get off the soap-box now.

Comments: Blame the lack of sleep or the crack. I meant that this is looking north-by-northwest (from the south-east side of the pinnacle)

Comments: Does anyone know if the picture below is of the 1st middle buttress? I want to say that this shot was looking south by south-west from the top of the 2nd pitch of the Army route on the pinnacle (I think I"m one buttress off because its a touch west, but thought I'd ask before going on an epic)

Comments: I really should wait until I get on the route again (which was supposed to be today, rain). However I want to say that the rating could reflect different variations at the crux. Particularly that the right side of the bolt line is a bit steeper and with less features than the left side (which features a conveniently placed bush, though its debateable if that's on-route for those ticking low-mid grade sport routes. sadly, like me).

Comments: I hate it when I have the ability to answer my own questions (had to go come and dig through a stack of periodicals to find my R&I). Since I haven't climbed the routes, and know nothing about them I'll take liberally from the authors (working L to R, after Climbing by the Brooks:
