West Face (The Pinnacle, Big West Face)

No topo.

Approach by scrambling up a gully below the obvious, left-facing dihedral and slab.

27. The West Face (5.0) Wander at will, aiming for the large tree on the cliff-top.  Downclimb or walk off south to a scree gully.
28. Crack Parallel (5.7) Two pitches up the steep slab left of an obvious, left-facing corner system on the west flank.  Scramble up to the base of pitch 1, just left of a gash.  Pitch 2 offers superb edging past eight bolts to bolt anchors just below the cliff-top.  Make two double-rope rappels down the route, or walk-off south to a scree gully.

Gear: Quickdraws, a few stoppers and small to medium camming units.
