Description 

A good, technical, face up a near dead-vertical wall. Thin, thin, edging on small chips and tip-sized crimps!

Begin on the Pinnacle Standard Route and climb it until you hit the 3 bolt face. Ascend the line over thin edges and past an odd, protectable bulge feature. Climb to a ledge and finish at a chain anchor. Great, delicate face climbing.


Location 

Silent Rock is found half way up the Pinnacle Standard Route on a steep face.


Protection 

Draws, a few long slings, and a 3/8th to 1/2 inch range cam (A grey alien fits perfectly in the pod near the middle). You also may want to include a couple of large pieces for the beginning of the Pinnacle Standard Route, but its nice to just climb to the base unprotected to avoid rope drag.
