  • Description 

    Goodrich Pinnacle is seen up and left of Monday Morning Slab. A 700' exfoliation slab, with a distinct left-side. The right-side is only a side for the last 100'.
    Start from the top of the Gob, a slabby formation a few hundred feet left of Monday Morning Slab and directly below the pinnacle.
    Climb (5.5) above the Gob to a sandy Belay ledge.
    Climb up and right between a dihedral and a white flake (5.7). Belay at the top of the flake.
    Climb up to a to a left-diagonaling crack . At the cracks end, move up and right (5.8) to a belay ledge.
    Climb up (5.7) to where a traverse right leads to a belay anchor.
    Move up to a bolt, then move left (5.9) to the base of the right-side chimney.
    Climb the chimney (5.7) to the top of the pinnacle.


    Standard rack.

    This is a fun route with great slab climbing but also chimneying. It may seem runout if you are not used to it.

    Wonderful route. If it is at all wet on the glacier point apron, this route may well be wet. I was up near the fourth pitch which is kind of runout on a fixed pin that looked pretty old. I look up the wall above me and the slightest trickle of water was approaching, just like when you wash your car and the first bits of water start running down the gutter.

    I did the friction moves wet, and after that the water just increased. The route was mostly wet. On the pitch before the final chimney, I believe it says you go straight up from the belay and past a few bolts, and the supertopo says it is 5.7 . These moves going straight up I feel are more like 5.10, if you clip one of those bolts, then traverse right a ways and then go up, you can keep it 5.7 .

    Bring two ropes to rappel the route.

    Connect this with Galactic Hitchhiker for a wonderful 20+ pitch day.

    There is no "easy" way on the top pitch. You can do a weird double-right-angles-rope-drag-from-hell 5.9 (the right variation) or the absolutely-unprotected-but-easier-5.9 direct. After going up with a Yosemite virgin and a Yosemite old-timer, we both agreed that the direct (left) option was preferable.
