Top Climbing Routes - Pistol Pete (5.10a) San Bernardino Mountains, CA

Pistol Pete (5.10a) San Bernardino Mountains, CA

A total cruiser, Pistol Pete is a mishmash route on choice patina flakes that takes you up an arête and plops you on top of a epic pinnacle in the San Bernadino Mountains - super views of the tasty Pacific waves just off in the distance.


  • Climb the slab passing two bolts (use a long draw or runner on the 2nd bolt) to a sloping ledge below the main face.
  • Clip the third bolt, work up and right via an undercling flake and then continue up the featured face/arete to a small stance at the 7th bolt.
  • Above here the climb changes character (again) and finishes up the exposed slabby arete via delicate, balancy moves.
  • Starts from ground level 15' right of Quick on the Draw and climbs the right side of a dark slab before heading up the left side of the main face.  // (via
