a few pics from Danland....11-15-13
Got up on the trail later in the morning. We were waiting for it to get a little warmer as a weak storm front was passing bringing temps down and adding some wind. Nice hike up the trail with the sweet smells of earth, bay leave and oak. Got up to the rock wall and started up right there. We did the 3 pitches of the 'Silly Pinnacle'. First pitch is aid with a mixed bolt ladder and some climbing up higher. Second pitch is a 5.8 free climbing corner, short but sweet. Last pitch is aid, a knarly looking overhanging roof crack up to a headwall bolt ladder to the top and the airy summit with the grand views! From here we do a quick 20' rap off the backside and scrambled down into a loose gully, down and back to the trail. We made it a quick trail run descent with the light going away fast and it was almost dark when we got to the car. Great Friday out!!
