From the mountain carpark take the lookout track. This ascends some stairs at a water tower past a rusty boiler and then along a flat track. All the pinnacles are downhill to the left of the track- the town side. The first small pinnacle is 20 metres along. The remainder are after you walk under a cliff on the right of the track. Most climbs are on the town facing side and get afternoon sun. Climbs for each pinnacle are described from carpark side towards lookout side of pinnacle.
