Exposed 4th classing

The book calls this 4th classing, it has some awkward exposed moves, and it brings you to the saddle below the west face. There are anchors to clip to since the saddle is very exposed.
This saddle can be also reached by climbing Nameless Face 5.11- from the south side.
Be cautious of rattlesnakes during the warmer season. We encountered a rattlesnake on our previous trip. My partner was down climbing this section and placed a hand into one of the cracks, which had a rattlesnake nest in it. He nearly got bit by a young one...

Wow!

An awesome picture you took, Liba! That pinnacle really looks psycho-adventurous-breathtaking! :-)

Re: Wow!

Thanks Eric. It is a really nice remote desert tower, and only psycho adventurous people could climb it first :) haha
