Description & Descent
End Pinnacle is the at the Northwest end of the Rockfellow group. It has a number of excellent climbs, some of which are bold traditional lines while others are well-protected bolted climbs.
Alternatively, it is possible to rappel the SW face with two ropes. Beware of getting your ropes stuck. Rappelling Magnus Veritas seems to result in the fewest rope snags.

From the campground in the East Stronghold, head north on the road approx .2 miles to a trail next to a large boulder in the road. Follow this trail west for approx .5 miles and gaining 1000 feet in elevation. At this point the path passes through a notch and levels off. After another 100 yards the trail forks, turn southwest and head toward the Rockfellow domes (which will be very obvious at this point.) After .2 miles, the trail heads up a short hill and deposits you at the North side of End Pinnacle.

An amazing, if unlikely line up the SSW side of the End Pinnacle, around the corner from Days of Future Passed. Great, mostly well-protected and airy climbing with a little bit of everything. The start is under a house-sized boulder which leans against the End Pinnacle. Beware of possible windy conditions and a shady and possibly very chilly first belay under a large boulder.P1: Start on the slab under the boulder to a small ledge and out to the left to a sickle shape feature and up steep fac...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
