North America, United States, California, Sierra Nevada, Balconies, Shake and Bake, Pinnacles National Monument

Balconies, Shake and Bake, Pinnacles National Monument. In May Chris Vandiver and I discovered perhaps the most sustained and spectacular free route at Pinnacles. We climbed the Balconies’ east face by way of a 350-foot indented, black water streak on the northern section of the Balconies. We placed 14 bolts for protection on the blank rock. NCCS II, F9.
