Elevation: 9,273 ft
Climbing and access information for this peak (called “Pinnacles Peak” in the book) is on Page 121 of the book. John Platt climbed this seldom-visited peak in 2019. His trip report is linked below. Updated August 2019
The Pinnacles stands out from its neighbors with a rugged summit block, steep towers trending north from the summit, and 1,200 feet of prominence. I’ve climbed it twice and I highly recommend it. However, I suspect that the trail for the Missouri Ridge Route has deteriorated since my last ascent in 1995. I do not believe that any of the lower pinnacles have been climbed. USGS Edwardsburg
The book lists two routes. Both use the Missouri Creek drainage. You can either follow the drainage to the base of the peak or the old Missouri Ridge Trail.
Take the Missouri Creek Trail up the valley until you reach a cabin. From this point, an old trail proceeds to the top of the Missouri Ridge, north of the peak. From the saddle between Missouri Ridge and The Pink, turn north and proceed up the ridge to the summit block. Climb the summit block on its East Side. The trail was in poor shape years ago. Originally a 4WD road or logging road, you will find plenty of downed trees on the route. Class 3. USGS Edwardsburg
