Organ Rock, Pilon’s Pillar. On Organ Rock, Pilon’s Pillar (V A5a 5.10) was soloed in November with three bolts. The route starts up Pele Nubian Sacrifice and goes straight up the overhanging east pillar. Although the crux has a 60-to 65-foot runout on beaks, it is the most straightforward and safe A5-minus I have done.
