Awesome climb. Second pitch is rad.
Starts in the grass on the ground to the left of the meadow area below the 3rd class approach.
Bolts. Rap anchor at "The Love Seat," and two bolt anchor on top.

Awesome Rock, Some a bit loose but not many, but a great sustained line. We did the first pitch. A trek to get out there but worth the trip.

Sweet route. First pitch felt like 10c "r" to me, and pumpy. Second pitch felt like 10a, not runnout, not pumpy, but with very cool exposure. Be sure to sling bolt #6 on pitch two or face big time rope drag. There is a fixed nut after bolt #6 (pitch 2) as of yesterday (3/7/14) that that comes in handy. Definitely primo Pinnacles stuff here.

I wouldn't call the first pitch runout. The bolt spacing increases after the 4th bolt, but it's a fairly safe vertical fall. The bolts do seem to be just after all of the cruxy moves, and my partner and I took a few whippers trying to project the first pitch. We started up the second pitch but I downclimbed after pulling off a sizable jug just beyond the second bolt. Ah Pinnacles.

I've only done the first pitch, and I found it super hard just following. The first ascent team rated it 10c officially, but there was talk of solid 10d. The length between bolts was a bit stretched, so while not dangerous it would be a big one. I need to go back and lead the first pitch, and do the second pitch. One of the best climbs in the park, go do it!
