Cardinal Pinnacle as seen...

Cardinal Pinnacle as seen from the east. There is a rap route more or less on the right edge of the crag as seen here, but as of August 2005, only the last anchor had chains, the others were just bolt hangers. One long rap(a 70m rope will do), or two short raps (50m rope is plenty long) will get you off the south side of the crag into the notch. It's a scree and talus fest from there. It's also possible to downclimb/rap (depending on your ability and nerve) the east side (facing the camera) or west side (not seen in this view).
