A few hundred feet from Cathedral Peak, Eichorn Pinnacle stands as one of the most spectacular features in the Sierra. The climb starts with a traverse off a large ledge onto tremendously exposed terrain that is sure to make your stomach turn. Though the moves are well protected and rated 5.4, the fantastic exposure will get blood pumping for even the most experienced climbers. The climb ends on a spectacular summit with dramatic exposure on every side. This is a great linkup with Cathedral Peak.
