Behind the Second Pinnacle are a pair of short walls, facing each other and with a nice collection of worthwhile routes. Some actually get plenty of sun, the best of the collection are described here. The descent from the pinnacle is by reversing Layback, the wide crack splitting its inside face, and from the main edge by climbing down The Backdoor Mod, the blocky groove on the right.
