Please expand this article into a full one. This can be done by Adding a Locations section with images and brief descriptions of the areas within the whole location. This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page.

Pinnacle Rocks is a location in Final Fantasy IX located near Lindblum on the Mist Continent and can be accessed as early as disc 1, when the player is in control of Zidane.

Only a small part of the area is available for exploration, and two treasure chests to be looted, but further progress is halted by a large cliff. There is a sign reporting an apparent ghostly presence in the area. Other than this, the rocks have no use at this point in the game.

StoryEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
Pinnacle rocks story

Pinnacle Rocks story.

After fleeing from Alexandria Castle, Princess Garnet, Zidane, and Vivi use the Gargan Roo in hopes of seeking refuge in Treno.

Halfway there, a Ralvuimago appears and scares the Gargant, preventing it from moving on. The party fights against the Ralvuimago and believe they were successful, until it comes back and chases after them. This causes the Gargant to panic and makes them overshoot the Treno station, ultimately crashing at Pinnacle Rocks. After picking themselves out of the cart wreckage, they meet an old man whom Garnet recognizes as the eidolon Ramuh, the Thunder God. She asks Ramuh for help and he replies that in order for him to serve her, he has to first test her to see if she is fit to be his master.

Ramuh states that he has hidden five manifestations of himself in the forest and that each will tell part of the "Hero's Story". If Garnet collects them and arranges them in the proper order, Ramuh will become her eidolon. Once the story is complete, Ramuh asks Garnet to choose between two possible conclusions but, regardless of which one the player chooses, he becomes her eidolon. When the party leaves Pinnacle Rocks, they witness the Siege of Lindblum.

Like many places in Gaia, Pinnacle Rocks cannot be accessed in Disc 4 due to an Iifa root blocking the entrance on the world map.

Spoilers end here.
