The topo for this area doesn't appear to be very accurate. There are five pinnacles on the ridge which is Black Butte. The highest is the second from the North. This is the fourth from the north and second from the south. It is the highest point reachable from the south (class 3) before encountering some hairy notches and very steep walls. It is not too far below the true summit (pinnacle 2); 9000' is an estimate. Still very nice views from this summit.
