Comments: No wonder there was so much rope drag!

Hey wait, I thought Burt was belaying? Thank goodness he at least tied me off before he scrambled around to take the picture!

Comments: We continued on to the top of the E summit, then followed the cairns across the knife-edge W to the main summit.

Great day! The first 3 pitches are very nice, and we found two more pitches up higher by continuing straight up, ~ 5.8 - 5.10, depending on how you approached the final bulge.

Comments: A description of the West bluff towers circuit would make a nice addition here. I'm thinking you could provide an overview, with links to individual routes pages?

Comments: James! I too have been thinking we need a place to post linkups and circuits! This is the place for our DL "Astro-Boy"!

I think this "area" should include either the word "linkup" or "circuit" in the title.

Comments: Nice photo.

tangentially, there have been a couple of rattlers spotted on the East Bluff this year (2013)!

Comments: The ring bolt was placed in the 1960s by one of those Stettner boys ... ask around the CMC about it! At that point, they had already been climbing there for a few decades.

The Wisconsin State Historical Society has a photo of someone on top of the Needle from the 1910s by H.H. Bennett

Comments: Four pieces of gear: pink tricam, #2 C4, #4 C4, and a #5 C4.

You could substitute the appropriate size nut for the tricam, it's just there to keep you from bouncing into the abyss on the first easy moves.

And you could use the 3 & 4 C4s instead of the 4 & 5, but you will have to put more thought into how you place them.

Comments: The oak tree at the base of "Swillbillies" has a dead limb pointing toward "Freaky Face". There is an active bee's nest inside the dead limb ... a couple of people got stung yesterday.

Doesn't seem to effect "Swillbillies."
