The East Ridge of Pinnacle is a fun alpine rock climb to the summit of Pinnacle Peak. It has a short approach followed by fun easy rock. It is a one day trip.
The route itself begins at the saddle between castle and Pinnacle. The first section is a scramble up to some trees. From here the technical climb begins and is an exposed rock climb with a few moves of up to 5.6. The last pitch begins in a small notch and proceeds along the ridge to the summit. This pitch is mostly a scramble near the summit with a few 5th class moves down below.
