Ascent Trip Report

7am start from Big Lake. Perfect conditions, nice and clear out but not overly hot with a light breeze at the base of the pinnacle. Paul who has been up here many times showed us the route while Michael led the first pitch climbing. Once above the 1st pitch the steep scrambling of the remaining pinnacle was a memorable experience. It was great to get back together with this group of climbers, we had a great time.
