a free standing formation or is there a ridge or something to hike off from the back? Nice Rob - had no idea Pinnacles had such things!

Thanks Radek, it's kind of a peak-type thing .. the guidebook says there is a fourth-class walkoff down the SE side, though I've heard there might be moss and poison oak involved :)

Also be aware that this thing is subject to raptor closures, something we neglected to check on before climbing it (embarrassment).

Rob, thank you for all the info...so if this is part of the NP system, I take it dogs are not allowed on the trails there? You & Lisa got some real geoms posted on that place - psyches one up for a visit :)

Hmm, you are probably right .. here's what it says on the website about pets.

The Discovery Wall & Tourist Trap areas over on the east side have a lot of good routes to start with. It's pretty nice in the springtime and a nice intro to Pinnacles climbing. Pavel has climbed some hard stuff on the Monolith (near Discovery Wall).

I think just about anything in the guidebook with stars would be worth looking at. There is also a Pinnacles forum over at www.mudncrud.com :)
