Stoked to be back on Dinner Ledge after my first big wall. Only made it 2.5 pitches past this point on South Face Washington Column, incredible experience nonetheless.

Comments: Definitely did not find a lower set of anchors. Led it two days ago and end up running it out from the off width all the way to the top anchors (easy 4th with one chimney section on top). Definitely did not want to do the runout face to the bolt due to a huge fall potential. Set up a TR from top anchors with some descent rope drag. Grunting and suffering are two great techniques to get you through the crux parts.

Comments: Came to it this morning with my buddy, and had the impression that it was going to be a super fun onsight that wouldn't really be too hard after the bulge. Nope. 10b is a total sandbag. I leave the tree as soon as possible, making the move through the bulge at least 10d if not 11a. Super small finger locks exist between the first pocket and the crappy hand that follows (if you dive it directly into the slot). There were a few small things to grab on to, but not much. Climbing is surprising... more >>

Comments: Super fun. If you have a basic understanding of hand and foot jam techniques, this is a great one to test yourself. It's the first tall hand crack you come to at the base of this beautiful chunk of stone. Just lead it, ya dangus!

Comments: Definitely recommend a #4 for the ow up high. Not that it's too techy up there, but gear gets rather sparse and a fall would more than likely result in a collision with the ledge below the stem. Rad route, though! TR'd the finger crack down and to the left today, too.

Comments: This climb follows the blank face to the right of PA corner. A missing hold near the first bolt has made the climb much harder than an 11.

Comments: Went walking around there today and could only find one of the anchors. Bolts on the climb itself look new . Not sure where other anchors are.

Comments: Did this route last week with a Camp 4 buddy. Awesome climb! I lucked out by getting all the good pitches (1, 3 and 5). I was definitely caught off-guard by the squeeze chimney on top of Pitch 5, but struggled through it and basked in the glory of the top of the Pinnacle. We decided it would be more efficient to rap the route (we were the only ones there). All anchors have been replaced and are stamped with a comforting ASCA stamp. Very well protected, very fun. No evidence of large rockf... more >>
