BETA PHOTO: Podunk Pinnacle from the uphill side near End Pin.


Podunk Pinncale is a cool looking blocky spire that is hidden from view from the road. It is often missed because of its more popular neighbors, the Ten Pins. However, a nice splitter crack leads to the top, and the summit is well worth a visit.

Getting There 

Park at a tiny spot just in front of End Pin. This is at a tight switchback between the Totem Pole and the Cathedral Spires parking lot. Walk (bushwack) just to the left of End Pin and down the gully, heading downhill. A spire with a blocky top and a splitter crack near its left side is straight ahead. This is it.
