Pinnacle Buttes-- Southeast Peak-- #1
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Seen from Pinnacle Buttes Southeast Peak #2.
My route across the face was more or less horizontally along ledges, staying above the snowbank seen at left. Beyond that point, I gained the ridge to access the summit.
As large as the formation may look here, it is only about a mile of travel from this point, with about 500' of elevation gain from the saddle between the peaks, but there is a lot of Class 3 and 4 terrain with exposure and rotten rock.
