    Pull into the hanging corner crack and climb it to the bulge. Step right to a good foothold and swing back left immediately to a spectacular finish on suspect flakes.

    Take a line up the left face of the pinnacle, starting from its extreme left side. Move up until hands are on the obvious ledge, then move right and use incut holds to reach the short crack at the top, directly below a sapling.
