Stonehouse Pinnacle, Stonehouse Peak, Trinity Alps. During the late spring, Frank Yager, Bill Griffin, and I hiked seven miles up to Lower Canyon Creek Lake in the Trinity Alps to climb a 1000-foot pinnacle on Stonehouse Peak. Our route followed the most prominent dihedral for eight pitches of mixed climbing and required a bivouac. We found the granite almost as good as Yosemite’s and we recommend the Trinity Alps for enjoyable rock climbing. NCCS III, F7, A2.
