  • Description 

    This is a nice finger and hand crack that continues the tradition of stellar crack climbing on Cynical Pinnacle.


    From the top of the the last pitch of the Center Route, rap east off the backside of Cynical Pinnacle. The crack follows the line of the rappel making this an excellent top rope as well.

    Back in the day, this was the standard descent off of Cynical Pinnacle. You rapped east into the cleft and worked your way down and south, tunneling through a few key bottlenecks to arrive back at the ground.


    Finger to hand-sized pieces.
