Comments: Oh yeah, I'm not saying it's cheap. Best one I found was $5 with maps from a Goodwill in Kansas a few years ago. It's just cheap-er if someone were looking.

Comments: We thought Rhoads' "double direct" was the intended route today, didn't read these comments beforehand. Runout and a bit frightening indeed on lead. Great route with an exciting and surprisingly hard finish.

Comments: Yeah the approach from anywhere except through camp B sucks this time of year. If nobody is camped there, that's the easiest. I came up from the A side last weekend as there were folks camping at B and it was terrible.

The WCA is working on coming up with a better plan than the restroom approach while also avoiding camp B. Stay tuned. Come to the comp Sept 17th!

Comments: Didn't even get close Eric! But it was alot of fun regardless.

Doug, we had this same conversation about a rating. I'm super bad at giving numbers and usually just agree with whatever is posted. I think it could be 11- as the crux felt harder to me than anything on Flake Route, Thoroughfare, Vivisection, WWH, Sometime Direct, etc, but the sequence is fairly short then it eases off to a jug haul. Neither Matt or I did it first try. However it was pre... more >>

Comments: Lead this yesterday as part of my 45th Bday challenge weekend. A frightening hard start into very enjoyable climbing. Surprised it wasn't listed on MP already as a face climb -- the "variation" of Sick Vulture that allows use of the arete notwithstanding.

Comments: Leadable: beware blowing the crux sequence or especially just above it will still deposit you on the ledge, see photo. Nice addition by Erol.

Comments: Amazon Canada has the Touch the Sky guidebook for $82 right now

That's about the cheapest I've seen it in a long while if anyone is interested in a historical guidebook of the Needles. Not sure if this one has the maps in it or not. Doesn't seem like it.

Comments: Haha yeah we didn't just walk right up to it and climb that's for sure. Took some talus and woods slogging to find this one. Worth the hike though!

Comments: Yeah agreed. Straight up from the belay into that discontinuous crack system seemed 10- for sure, and scary to start as you are looking at decking on the belay ledge if you flub up anything low.

Comments: The GPS coordinates at the spot where you walk due west from the CCC trail to this boulder are: 43*24'46"N and 89*42'40"W. I'll post a photo of the spot where you walk directly west towards a very tall pine tree. Boulder is under this tree. It's maybe 100 yards directly west of the CCC trail from this spot.

This was the easiest approach IMO, but as the comments above point out, you... more >>

Comments: The easiest approach is not from the east bluff woods trail. Walk up the east bluff trail (from the north shore) and where the cave is and the trail goes up steps to the right you stay left and follow the secondary trail around the bluff to the left, away from the lake. You will find this bluff after maybe 5 minutes.

As with many areas at Devils Lake, you can approach from any direction, but what I posted above is the quickest IMO.

Comments: Ryan: 60M double rope rap will make it to the base from the summit. I don't think one 70M rope rap from the top would make it down.

My comments above reflect our confusion when first climbing this spire. We climbed what we think is the proper 5.8 way this past weekend. From the 1st pitch belay ledge you climb the huge flake to your right to the top of the flake, then reach left into another smaller flake system which has a piton in it. From there again reach/traverse u... more >>
