Great little climb.

Did Pinnacle after spending the afternoon at the Rainier Mountain Fest.

Easy climb with a bit of exposure near the top, incredible views of Rainier.

Nice and short from the parking area. Lots of loose rock though. If there is anyone above you, you really need a helmet. You can't help but dislodge rocks on this one. Kinda exposed at the top but not too bad. Great views of Rainier and the Tatoosh.

Route Climbed: Tatoosh Traverse Date Climbed: 9/6/03  Sucess!

Left Logmire trailhead at 4:37AM, bagged Eagle, Chuta, Wahpenayo (short break and filter water), Lane, Denman, Plummer (short break, food), Pinnacle, Castle, (short break & water filter) Foss, Boundary and Unicorn. Blew off Stevens... too far away, too late in the day. Made it back to the Snow Lake trailhead around 11:00PM (18:30 hours) for a short rest, more food & Red Bull. Retrieved our mountain bikes out of the bushes & rode back to Longmire. Total time roughly 20 hours. 11 peaks & >11,000' in cumulative elevation gain. Tiring but fun. Hopefully will post a TR with more details.

We are not super man climbers, but this peak had some route options that made it a worthy challenge for us. Great Day on a mountain we have wanted to climb for years. I highly recommend this peak.

Outstanding weather. Did this as part of the Tatoosh Traverse. Beautiful area. Looking forward to doing this one in the winter.

I climbed this peak with my RMI expedition seminar team. It was our practice climb the day before our summit. "daynegains" here at summitpost, myself, two others and two guides made the climb. It was a fun scramble that afforded some great views of Rainier once the clouds lifted!

Cloudy rainy day made the scrambling slick. Good little quick climb.

A great day of scrambling but watch for loose rock. Also, during the approach, watch the stonefall on the small glacier below.
