Inner Constance Pinnacles. The easternmost of three pinnacles lying on a spur ridge extending northwest from the north end of the Inner Constance Ridge was climbed June 17, by Pete Schoening, Brian Gordon, and Jim Lindsay. The pinnacle was named “Rottenrockelspitz” and is easily identified by a huge split which bisects it completely. A chimney stem led to the east ridge in two leads over rotten rock. The other two pinnacles are believed to be still unclimbed. The ascent was made during a traverse of the entire Inner Constance Ridge with Dan Northcutt, Doug Barrie, and Dave Laster.
