Ascent Trip Report

My friend and I made it within 15 feet of the summit. We spent quite a bit of time testing several different routes before climbing about halfway up pinnacle to southeast edge where we failed to find handholds we could trust. Lots of exposure up here, and many rocks pulled free when testing for handholds. I plan to give this another shot, plenty of people have succeeded here, I just wasnt feeling real confident after so little climbing this year.
