Pinnacle Buttes Southeast Peak #1

Seen from Pinnacle Buttes-- Southeast Peak #2. Follow the ridge up. The little knob on the right end of the summit ridge is the highpoint. It is harder to reach than it looks-- not technically difficult (Class 4 about) but very rotten, very narrow, and very exposed. In some places, including the final 15 or so yards to the summit block, it is too narrow and rotten to walk on.

Absaroka Range, WY-- August 2011

Re: spooky

Funny that you mention that...many people call the rock out here exactly that. It's bad enough that even Class 3 can get pretty scary, and Class 5 is sometimes flat out of the question. Nothing like holds pulling right out as you grab them...
