Saturday I explored a pinnacle that I have my eye on for a while. It sits out near the end of the NE ridge of Angora Peak. It’s a pretty easy short thrash from the abandoned road, along the ridge crest. The pinnacle itself is probably 60’-80’ tall. You can scramble all but the last 35’, which will take technical gear to get up. It’s now on my list of projects.
Sunday I explored a large section of the Arch Cape Creek drainage, looking for either water falls or rocky cliffs. I found both, but nothing too extraordinary. I was able to explore 75% of the section I set out to explore. The drainage narrows in several spots, and is filled with large boulders and log jams. The creek disappears in several spots under the boulders and log jams. I found a 15’+ water fall and many rocky cliffs. It was very slow going, and a total thrash fest in a few spots. Unfortunately I only had my old phone for pictures…
I set it on the hood of the truck and forgot….got about 10-miles down the road before realizing… On my way back I passed a couple of big semi-trucks…then spotted my poor camera in many pieces in the middle of Hwy 101. Miraculously I found the SD card with the pics from the day before.
The rest of these pics are from my old outdated smart phone…
Parking at the gate…ignore the signs, walk past the gate for about 1/10 of a mile, then through another gate…now your on private timber land.
