Goodrich Pinnacle Right TR 6/7/09
Here’s a few pics of this great route.
This deer was not impressed with us and only moved away under protest.


The first couple of pitches, are fun and moderate. Here’s a pic looking down pitch 3, 5.7. This was moderate as well, and fun.


Here’s a pic looking up P4.

This pitch has short section of slick friction moves after the one bolt, 5.8, kind of a warm up for what’s above.

I lead P5. It is a bit run out but there is good pro at the 5.9. I thought I was getting the tough pitch but this 5.9 is not that bad.

Here is a pic of P6.

This is the real deal. Even following was thought provoking. We went down and left after the last bolt. The runout is long after this but the holds seem huge after the early slickness.

P7 is just fun.


There are some pretty nice views up here.


Here’s Bob on top of the Pinnacle.


Yours Truly on the rappel.


Another nice day. See you on the rock.

Thanks for posting.
I've been meaning to get back up there but wanted a little more beta. Last time I did it I followed pitch 5 (right tending 5.9 in book) and found it about 10c above only one manky pin. I guess I wasn't following the path of least resistance but I've been a bit terrified of that pitch ever since. ha

Not so bad you say? I'll have to look around a bit more next time. I found the next pitch not that bad myself.

Did you see any evidence of rock fall on the LEFT side as was reported some time back on ST? Sounded like it started near the top? Whatever, it goes without saying great classic route.

Thanks for sharing your fine outing. No thunder, I guess.


Rockermike- It sounds like you were on the straight up P5- higher pucker factor.

Rockermike,
I think you did get off route on P5. The way I went is straight up to the nest of pins. I put a black Alien in next to it- probably would have held. (I know, I know, fricken Aliens. Got to get them off Bob's rack) then you go directly right and even a little down. Just as you start to feel you are a little out there, two bolts appear. A few moves later you get the good 3/4" cam that's on the Supertopo. the 5.9 is right after that so you are solid.

Here's more info on this route and Clint's topo which shows the bolts.

Charlie D.,

The possible rockfall zone previously discussed is above the top of Goodrich Pinnacle, probably slightly left of the Goodrich to Oasis route.
