Tribes and PUD wrangle over work at Peshastin

Recommended Posts

"Peshastin Pinnacles rock formations...well loved by just about everyone else."

 

Now I wouldn't go that far...

This too may be a bit of an exaggeration:

 

"They have...significance to rock climbers, who flock there to scale the spires."

"The tribes already have expressed concern that the many rock climbers who visit the state park could speed the site’s degradation."

 

I don't think the tribes should be too concerned by the 5 to 10's of climbers who visit the Pinnacles each year.

Power company has to do what they have to do. The pinnacles will continue to fall down as they have done forever. I was shocked when trigger finger fell over in the 80's...but after seeing 2 more big collapses I'm not surprised anymore.

 

They may knock some stuff down...but so be it. There are more tourists there than climbers now. They love to hike around, it's very pretty. On a typical spring weekend there may be 10 climbers a day, more or less. I still love it there. Vertigo is not a route to miss. Sunset slab is great slab training. It's heady, but not especially dangerous. Bottom line there is not to start up something without some beta from a local...if you can find one. Never assume there are enough bolts just because it is in the guidebook.
