Description 

Nearly equal in beauty to the neighboring Cathedral Peak, Eichorn's Pinnacle offers one of Tuolumne's most spectacular summits. It is named after Jules Eichorn (1912 - 2000), an avid mountaineer and Sierra Club leader, who first summited via the North Face in 1931. More about Jules Eichorn can be found here.

The North Face affords an easy way to tag the summit after climbing Cathedral's Southeast Buttress.

Getting There 

From the Cathedral Lakes trailhead, follow the main (John Muir) trail for approximately 3 miles.

The center crack on the east face is the obvious gnarly looking offwidth going up the center of the pinnacle as visible from Cathedral Peak.

Step out off the ledge with a few hundred feet of air suddenly below your heels and begin to traverse up and left aiming for the short hand crack roof.
