This is apparently the earliest recorded climb at Suicide Rock. The first ascent party brought a jug of Paisano with them, and left the empty bottle on top of the pinnacle. It's a short, clean 4" wide offwidth. From Paisano ledge, walk into the slot behind the pinnacle, and you will see this route on your left.


several #3.5 and #4 camalots

The business on this is really short, the first 15' right off the ground, where it's just shy of vertical, then the angles kicks way back. Too short to recommend, even though the climbing and rock are good.
