The amount of time I've been spending on Pinnacles lists, topos, maps and statistics is starting to boggle my mind. In the last week I've field-checked and cleaned/edited three topos to my current standards, written up five new routes (three of which are now done and on this site), worked on three separate parts of the updated/revised East Side text, updated the list of projects, climbed five days and kept track of my own climbs.

Is this a full time job? If so (self-appointed, so I'm not complaining), I kinda like it.

I added one route to the list just now:

-  312.4  Sling the Jockstone  5.11b

Started by Rob and Josh and just finished.

Now, Pinnacles for two more days before it rains. And we'll start the cycle all over  ::)

I'd love to see one. My fingers are sore though. You write it?

And it wasn't really harrowing. But I can say that Brian is very strong and very tall - he did a great job. And thanks to Rob and Josh - who aren't getting to Pinns as much as they used to - for letting us give it a go.

Warning, warning, the rating on this route is very height-dependent.

I added two routes to the list today:

-  352.33  Inverted Jug  5.9 *

-  351.6  Ribbet and Croak  5.6 R *

And as a further note, there are currently four routes on the “private” list, so we’re already over 1,200 routes at Pinnacles.

I added a route to the list today:

-  417.9  The Clipper  5.4

Although I didn't give the route any stars, I really enjoyed putting it up. I think the route either loses elevation or stays even in 135 feet of climbing. All with nice exposure and still ending 60 feet above the ground!

More like a Sierra Nevada ridge-run.

OK, I just added the first of several new routes that I'm trying to get added before I take off with Katie to Joshua Tree. It's:

432.1  The Raven - North Side  5.10c

Next I'll be posting a correction for the area, fixing some misinformation and explaining a bit about this route.

I added five more routes to the list. All were done over the Masters of Mud weekend:

-  351.3  The Great Escape  5.7 R

-  351.3  Spoof Proof Roof  5.9 **

-  352.943. Conjunction Junction  5.10d

-  370.9. Yellowflower Pinnacle  Class Four

-  407.2  Fifi Wears Lycra  5.9 *

I’ll add three more when I get to them (tomorrow, I hope).

EDIT: I should say that all were finished over that weekend.

And thanks for the look-over, J.C.
