Ascent Trip Report

From Plummer Peak, followed across to Pinnacle, but faulty recollection of route description led to taking a gully on the SE side and face to join the E ridge (Class 3, then 4+, loose rock) - this was realized when I found a rusty piton on the more vertical wall about 1/2 way up. Continued on after a bit of "meditation" and gained the exposed ridge; upon reaching summit found the path (yes, path...) down the original route. Headed up The Castle to finish the day.
