Description 

The Pinnacle is just what the name says -- a rock tower overlooking the valley and Lake Weiss below. Most of the climbs here are trad lines; almost all can be set up as topropes by leading a route to the top.

The classic Pinnacle climb is Comfortably Numb, on the south (valley-facing) side. Don't miss this great route!

Getting There 

From the parking lot, walk a short distance past boulders to an open area. The Pinnacle is down the hill to the left, just past the Holiday Block.

Comfortably Numb 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  AL : Sand Rock : The Pinnacle
A true Sandrock trad classic, Comfortably Numb is long, pumpy and exposed. It's a great challenge for bold leaders, but many like to set it up as a toprope. A 60-meter rope is a must.Starting in the center of the wall, climb a slabby face with little opportunity for pro; you may be able to place a tiny cam before you get to a fixed pin about 40' up, just below an overhang/bulge. Pull through the overhang on good holds to a spacious ledge and catch your breath, then head up through a...[more]   Browse More Classics in AL
