Lost Pinnacle. Between the chain of lakes and Sunlight Basin lies a small area of granite faces and pinnacles. On a warm weekend in August I hiked into the area and crossed wobbly boulders, raging creeks, and fought my way through vicious thorned bushes to an obscure and lonely pinnacle above Sunlight Basin. I climbed the short north ridge to a notch and then ascended a thirty-foot corner to the top. NCCS I, F3. A variation in an off-width crack provided the second ascent, both made on August 30. NCCS I, F7.
