Nice TR. Pinnacles is a great place.

Might want to fix the one caption though...I believe you're 'rapping' not 'raping.'

The High Peaks remain my favorite Pinnacles destination, in part because it remains less crowded with climbers. The raptor closures take some of the best climbs in the spring, but there's still plenty of good stuff to climb.

Thanks for the TR and fine pictures.

Looks great. Kind of reminds me of the Black Hills Needles when you look at the spires from a ways away.

Great to see a shot of Dragonfly Dome. I remember when Roper and I did the first ascent in 1960 we had run out of bolts after the lead,ie. no rappel bolts for the summit. So we used the old technique of simultaneous rappellng from opposite sides of the pinnacle. Takes some getting use to! Of course I got the longer side and Roper the shorter. Here is a Denny photo from that day.
