The Pinnacles

(2 routes)

Only a couple of routes here so far, but potential for some more and some bouldering. The
pinnacle split by a prominent crack has two crack climbs.

Climb the slightly overhanging hand crack. The top lip is a little friable, like Turtle Power used to be before they all broke off. Named after Bryces fat cat (the one that pissed in his gumboots that morning – anyone want a cat?). All natural gear and DBC belay.

Climb the crack on the LH side of the pinnacle. Starts tight at the bottom and goes to wide fists at the top. Named after Bryces other cat. All natural gear and DBC belay.

There are 2 new routes by Tony Burnell, 20& 21?? Quandry circa 2000 & Domino Effect 18 Dec 2012, posted on the Main Cliff RHS http://climbnz.org.nz/nz/si/canterbury/port-hills/transmitter-crag/main-...

There's 4 new routes right of old fella's folly - all seem about the 19 mark. Anyone got an idea of who the first ascensionist was and names?
