Pinnacles Buttes-- Southeast Peak #1

The one in the middle is the second-highest notable crag on the peak. On one side, not visible here, there is a chimney that definitely looks climbable and reaches what appears to be a narrow, sloping ledge before the boulder-like summit block. Getting atop the block would probably be a bouldering problem, not a simple scramble. Rock quality is awful, so forget protection except maybe in the chimney. This pinnacle has probably never been climbed.
