Climbing Guidebooks For Pinnacles

Climbing Guidebooks for Pinnacles

The Official Printed Guidebook

All references to Areas, Formations and Routes on our Web site are taken from the last "printed" guidebook:

A Climber's Guide for Pinnacles National Monument

Written by Brad Young
ISBN #: 978-0-9797421-0-1

Unfortunately, this guide is out of print and used copies are difficult to come by. The good news is that Brad is working on an updated version of the guide - the bad news is that we do not have a projected release date for the guide.

On-line Resources: Mountain Projects

A fair amount of Pinnacles climbing information can be found on Mountain Projects.

Significant effort goes into keeping this information consistent with the printed guide.
