More information:
Retired in 2001! Learned to climb in the Tetons in 1985. I live in Portage, Wisconsin, which is only 16 miles from the friction-less quartzite at Devil's Lake. I primarily enjoy mountaineering and have ascended peaks in the western U.S., Mexico, Canada, Europe, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Alaska. Pardon the pun, but the Needles also rock. The Needles and Spires in the Hills are only 760 miles away from where I live, which makes the long drive bearable for a 4-day or longer road trip. This web site is super. Great job!

Anne Meyer after rounding the back side of the top of Lander Turkey Shoot before reaching the offset bolt anchors.  Anne Meyer standing at the two-bolt, lowered anchor after leading the climb.  Paul Huebner heading up to 5th bolt on Shark Bait.  Paul Huebner heading up towards the second bolt.  Use a double length sling on the last bolt while leading Shark Bait or Shark's Breath. It sure avoids a lot of friction on your rope while belaying up your partner(s). Just make sure the rope clipped biner hangs below the rock bulge.
