The major crackline running up the middle of D Minor pinnacle.
This climb has excellent protection but has a sad history of death and serious injury from people taking long falls off the top overhang onto the easy-angled middle section of the climb. Please take care to place multi-directional runners on the top overhangs so that lower runners are not pulled out by rope tension during a fall.
Can be done in a single pitch using twin ropes.
- (25m, 10) Follow the crack on fine holds until jugs lead up a steepening. Easy angled ground leads to a great belay spot under the overhangs.
- (10m, 14) Follow the crack through the overhangs.
