Pinnacle Peak Climbing Notes

Doug from UNITED STATES writes:

Pinnacle Peak is a great little class 3 (rope optional) summer scramble with amazing views. Be prepared for hot sun exposure in summer, early snow in the fall, serious technical climbing in winter, avalanche possibilities into late winter and spring. Approximately 5 hours car to car if you're slow like me.
