A classic expedition up the seaward side of the large tooth-topped pinnacle, the summit of which can be seen in the lower reaches of Pinnacle Gully. Start at the base of The Pinnacle, at a vague ramp in newly-exposed rock, which leads right to a prominent left-facing corner.</br>1) 4b, 18m. Climb the ramp and corner to ledges on the right, pinnacle belay up left.</br>2) 10m. Take the steep crack above the ledge on good holds to another ledge and belay.</br>3) 12m. Climb up the corner behind the stance and move right onto the front of the pinnacle, beneath a wide crack in the summit block. Move up into the crack and climb to the summit.</br>Descent - Either stay roped-up and downclimb the steep wall to the left (looking up the gully) at Diff standard, or abseil from a prominent spike on the landward side of the summit.
