How bizarre

I don't think I'd have the cajones to climb a volcanic Oregon pinnacle the base of which was half the area of the top. Man that thing looks weird. Big ups on summiting & the cool page! Is there any free climbing under 5.11?!

Re: How bizarre

Thank you very much Dirk! As an aid climb, it's not that bad but I can't imagine freeing it though I know many have done it. As far as I know, the posted Dod Route is the only fully free line to the summit and that is reportedly 11b. Other routes are just progressively scarier nail ups up to an unrepeated A4 (??) line I think.
Thanks for visiting & good word Dirk!
