Pitch to Summit Ridge of White Rock Pinnacle

Because there is no fixed rope here, this is the hardest climbing spot of the route (there are one or two harder spots if you do not use the fixed ropes). It goes at Class 3-4 and is steep and exposed, and treacherous when wet as it was both times I have climbed it. It takes you to a saddle east of which is the exposed, intimidating-looking final section to the summit, but it is not as difficult as it may look (though it still has tremendous exposure, especially on the south side).
