A topo for this route is available for clicking this link:
Note that this climb is on two faces, the W face and SW face. You will need the topo for the SW face of end pinnacle for the final pitch to the summit.

The description (and look) of WTTM p1 didn't compare to endgame p1, so we did the following linkup that I HIGHLY recommend: Endgame pitches 1 and 2 (WTTM p2 is mostly same of endgame p2 anyway), WTTM pitches 3 and 4, finish on engame p5. Thoroughly enjoyed pitch 3! Neat, thought-provoking moves. Used only one piece (#3 cam) on p4, so don't overdo the rack you may bring up. IMHO, p4 was 5.9ish.
I would give the link-up 4 stars!
Saw a new finish for p5 above the big ledge. Would be a pretty direct finish to WTTM. If it wasn't late in the day we probably would have tried it. It was a bolted pitch probably about 40 feet rock left of the anchors for days of future passed. Any idea of the rating on this?

Agreed, Endgame pitch 1 into WTTM, finishing on Endgame's 5th is a 4 star route!
I noticed the newer rap set-up off the summit down the front and would not recomend it in windy conditions. It's just too simple to go down the traditional rappels through the chimney and out the window.
