/ Limestone pinnacles/towers in Peak
Tissington Spires (2?)
The other one opposite Ilam Rock
My vague rules are that you can't walk to the top and they're basically only accessible to a climber.
Dovedale Church? Can't remember how we got down but I've a feeling it was by abbing off the back.
There is a nice list in OPR. If you dont have it I'm sure someone could upload it as a tick list.
Wildcat pinnacle. 40m of perfect pocketed limestone and still yet to be climbed in nailed boots.
The Obelisk near the lifts/Plum buttress Cheedale.
Tower of Babel at Stoney ? - not sure how detached it is
Trident at Harborough - again you might be able to reach it without using your hands (there's a challenge !)

There's another one near Rainster somewhere. Is it Jeffcoat's Pinnacle?
Also Pinders rock, though it looks like a tree from the road, and has a smaller cleaner neighbour. Most are in OPR though.
There's also a pinnacle at the not often visited (by normal climbers) Fin Cop. Top marks for finding it, topper marks for climbing it, Maximarks for surviving it.
I had a vague plan of doing all of the pinnacles in the peak a couple of years ago...i'll have a look to see if i've still got the list I made...unlikely, but possible!
Tom, you're in luck, I've found it! Drop me a line with your email address.
Sort of, though there are many different routes up most of the pinnacles...what do you want? Best route, easiest route, hardest route, first route, most logical route?
> There's another one near Rainster somewhere. Is it Jeffcoat's Pinnacle?
Yes, on private land. A small but very fine pinnacle, undercut all round. Then there's the easier Longstone one nearby.
Pindar's Rock used to be great, until it got so covered in ivy.
Er ... the OP was asking for limestone pinnacles ..
Parkhouse pinnacle. An interesting scramble.

Oops, I'll take the red wine defence on that one!
There is a pinnacle a few yards downstream of Psyche's Buttress in Water-Cum-Jolly, with an easy route called The Fairy.
