Description 

This climb is truly unique. Its rating is anybody's guess. From the top of Paisano Pinnacle, walk down to the very edge, looking out over the slot that separates the pinnacle from the nearby wall. Make a long jump over to the sloping wall, and then climb up 5.6 friction to the top. Your belayer has to give you a lot of slack to let you do the jump, and you would get scraped up if you didn't stick the landing. Tobin Sorenson once did the leap with a full twist.

Protection 

None, but your belayer is above you (on top of the pinnacle) when you make the jump.
