This gigantic boulder has one established route. Lying beside the BAW path in the talus slope just south of the Isobuttress, it is a scenic place to relax, watch climbers on Carpenter & Das' upper pitch, or observe vultures, hawks, falcons, and occasional eagles ride the thermals.
Take the BAW path east along the mountain's base, up past the Measles Walls, Height-of-Land Wall, Land of Overhangs, TeePee Wall, and Long Play Wall. The path turns just below the LPW, entering a rockslide/talus area. Pinnacle Overlook is the obvious, large promontory on the downhill side of the path in the middle of this area. If you reach the Isobuttress, you missed it.
